One or more unneeded page loads are often required to bring up the
desired page through the navigation menu (e.g., administer > settings >
Using CSS, this patch introduces automatically expanding menu options.
E.g., holding the mouse over "create content" will dynamically expand
the menu, revealing the available options ("page", "story", etc.).
Issues & questions:
* Is this a desired behaviour?
* Page loads are slightly larger, since they include hidden menu
* Not supported by, e.g., Internet Explorer due to CSS bugs.
Downgrades cleanly, but means that functionality is not uniform across
browsers. A js IE fix is available, see e.g.,
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/dropdowns/ but it's a big ugly.
* Display is a bit jumpy. Slideouts or slowed transitions might be
* Introduced as the default behaviour, not as an option. Should this
be a configuration option instead?
The approach is based on suggestions and code  for the
taxonomy_context module by eferraiuolo .
