Comment (by dlh):

 Replying to [comment:4 westonruter]:
 > Another question: I see `capabilities` is now mapping meta caps to
 `edit_theme_options`. Just to confirm that is desired as opposed to
 introducing new primitives like `edit_customize_changeset` which are then
 added to the administrator?

 It was intentional, but I'm glad you brought it up. I've kept
 `edit_theme_options` so far primarily because of the concerns raised in
 ticket:36368#comment:5 about new primitive caps. Do you think we should
 try to use primitive caps along with, say, a `user_has_cap` filter to
 provide backwards-compatibility?
