The main reason behind this is that there are hidden links to the
admin edit pages all over the place, so logged-in users can use the
one-click editing feature. Strictly speaking, this isn't a security
issue, but it'd be best to keep Google from crawling /admin, even if
there's really nothing there for them to see.
OTOH, it *does* provide us with a nice sorted list of Typo blogs by
PR, or whatever stands in for it now.
We should probably add an entry for /admin in the default robots.txt
