Rerolled against HEAD.

Since it seems the FORM api is going to go in *after* the freeze, this
should go in now, so before any of the forms are updated to the new API
(so this change is accounted for later instead of having to do another
patch :))

Is there a reason collapsible fieldsets is used *only* on the main
settings page? What about the users setting page? That is really long
and would benefit. And the uploads setting page, as you add more roles,
that page can get really long too.

I think we should add this feature to all standard Drupal settings
pages that are long like the settings page... it really helps and would
make things look more consistent, instead of "why the heck is this on
one page and not them all?". 

Need to get this into the next release as well to be consistent with
the approach of this new feature.

I've gone through all of the settings pages for the included default
Drupal modules and have applied the collapsible form fix. This really
does make a *huge* difference... it makes the Settings interface more
consistent and greatly improves readability. Let's get this one in! :)

Installed, and used the patched. Worked great. Much needed. :). +1

-1 and +1 at the same time. +1 but only after the forms API is in --
it'd be better if we won't break the fastly evolving patch.

Beat me to the post :) I just was reviewing the Forms API patch and
realized this one is no longer applicable if that goes through.

chx, can you include the fixes in this patch with the forms api? it
just makes a few extra menus 'collapsible' which with the new API,
requires even less code change, haha!
