I love to edit my menus and do so for all my sites. However, I hardly evern 
tweak my admin menus. Would it be a good idea to cache that part.  I mean: 
not load it in the tree, but cached/loaded in a *separate* block?

* Navigation
** site navigation 
** stuff

* Administration
** Other stuff
** etc:

The last block can be pulled from a cache and loaded only when needed (ie 1 - 
20% of all page loads, or so). if administration pages are loaded more then 
that, you should get a hobby (or get some ads online), because you are 
editing more then that your site is read ;)
