The 4.7 module allowed you to set any TinyMCE init settings in a
Drupal theme override function. You could change pretty much any
setting including button locations and orders as well as strictly
restricting the markup it produced. I just used the TinyMCE advanced
theme, then customised it for different Drupal roles in the theme.

Not as easy as a GUI, but better than editing the .js files directly
though IMO. Makes upgrading either TinyMCE or the module much easier
and your TinyMCE config is Drupal 'aware'.
