Not much of an effort, but any effort is a step in a good direction.

What do you think would be a step in good direction when it comes to admin themes? What would you like? Just curious!

Pascal Birchler

WordPress has already had horizontal admin menus. It didn't work out in the end.

Also, I wouldn't recommend creating or using admin themes. The default CSS and JavaScript is just so hacky, it would take hours to create something and even then it wouldn't work with every plugin. Instead, people should think about creating a completely customized admin area — perhaps using the new REST API — that suits their own workflow.
