[thelist] Wordpress - Limited Client Access

I want to provide a client with a site made in Wordpress, using plugins such as e-commerce, photo album, etc. This would require giving him/her the ability to access the plugin admin to upload photos and the like. However, it seems very unwise to give access to the entire Dashboard (as well as scary and dangerous for the client).

Does anyone know a way to limit a user to specific admin areas, such as the e-commerce plugin or photo album admin? Or, would I have to create those functions with a separate script on pages not controlled through WP (external scripts - not WP plugins) and give the client separate admin login pages for those (obviously a lot more work)?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
