...which will greatly improve consistancy and useability. Object based admin 
is very unusable, and gets very inconvenient I.C.W. role-bassed admin, and a  
modular system.

consistent.druypaldevs.org (refer to earlier posted msgs) is a test a for  a 
full task and menu-based approach. So far I managed to make Drupal there much 
more consistent, but above all much better useable, since all settings are 
always only three clicks away.
