This patch needs http://drupal.org/node/27804.

The throttle configuration is currently spread out on the modules page
and the block configuration page. This patch moves the module
throttling to a local task next to the throttle settings page. I have
not worked on moving block throttling yet since I want to see what the
reaction to this first part is.

If this is comitted I plan to move the block throttle checkboxes and
continue improving the modules page. With less interface elements the
modules page can be made even simpler that is it now.

+1 for moving throttle/performance settings to it's own page/tab

-1 for showing disabled modules; only list those that can be disabled


* "turning on" throttling seems counter intuitive... like, all the
modules should be checked as given priority... then you DESELECT in
order to take it off the priority list. I guess the current UI is
opposite of most conventions... where you start with everything enabled
and then take things /off/ the list.
* The list is not a scalable UI. If I have 60 modules (*cough cough*)
I'll see the first 10-15 and ignore the rest. If you could sort by
processing weight ("these modules suck up tonnes of memory! disable
these first!") or by functionality, the list would be much more
* I still think "throttle" is a terrible name. Like "taxonomy" people
don't readily know what it means and avoid it like the plague. From a
marketing perspective, this is bad news for Drupal since it may appears
that Drupal is slow when it really just needs to have its *performance*
settings tweaked.
