	Not really.  There are certain things (like personalization) that 
a site admin can prevent list owners from seeing, and you can set 
lots of defaults, but that's about it.

	There's no convenient way to go through and have the site admin 
to go through each and every option in the package and say "yes, I 
want them to see this option, no I don't want them to see those, yes 
this other one is okay, etc...."
