Yes, I agree -- profile configuration was much too deep. I actually
find myself doing way too much "URL hacking" rather than using the
admin menus to navigate. A big problem of this is depth, and why (for
the admin menu only perhaps) we need to consider some sort of drop
down/fold out menu. Actually, I'd love to split the "Admin" tree into
a block separate from the Navigation block.
