Hi all,

I have been following this thread with interest, but I am afraid is is not 
leading toa real solution, but rather to another "per casse solution", that 
makes drupal more and more inconsistant. 
Here is my proposed solution, that I built up from a philosofy, after looking 
at various other CMS and even desktop configuration systems. 
It should be a well balanced solution that takes into conssideration: 
Roles, tasks and most importantly frequency of visits to pages. after all: one 
needs to change the cache settings only very few times, while path moderation 
will happen more frequent.
PLease, I have asked it very often: give some feedback on this, I would like 
to proceed. 
So far I have only received very few (but very good) feedback. One is to 
rename the "Moderate" menu into something more meaningfull.

Also note, that I now changed the permissions: Everyone who is registered 
there will see the menus/structure as it should be. Anonymous users will not.
