I want to restrict certain themes so they can only be usable by the an admin. If I network a theme then everyone has access to it. How can I do this?

Could explain what you mean with »usable«? Especially how should widgets and nav menus work? – toscho Apr 24 '11 at 2:30

Its built in that way so you can have themes only on specific blogs:

  1. Disable the theme under Super Admin -> Themes.
  2. Enable the theme for one site under Super Admin -> Edit the site you want. Look on the top right, there's a list of disabled themes.
