That makes the menu too long/flat, IMO.
One alternative would be to have 'access control' and 'profile' tabs
directly under 'admin - user', instead of under 'admin - user -
configure' (one level less deep).
What is most needed is a highly-predictable location for settings
(without making them hard to access). The problem is that some
settings, like the throttle module settings can only live under 'admin -
settings'. As a result, the 'object oriented model' doesn't really fly.
