Redistricting on the horizon?

So, gerrymandering, one of my very first blog topics, seems to be getting a lot more attention (see here and here). Apparently, reform groups are gearing up all over the country to create better redistricting measures. I found a funny/scary quote in that article which seems to a) totally miss the point of redistricting reform and b) provide support for the theme that the current administration (or Republican party strategists in general, it is probably unfair to tie this anonymous person to the admin.) doesn't see any difference between politics and policy. The quote is:

One senior Republican Party strategist, who did not want to be identified given the sensitivity of the issue, warned that while Mr. Schwarzenegger's proposal could help Republicans in California, it could have unwanted consequences if states where Republicans now have an edge follow California's lead.
