[development] Use tabs to separate module groups on admin/build/modules page?

As I understand it, Drupal 5+ no longer does that.  That's what the 
.info files are for.  Those files are only a couple hundred bytes each 
so the full page even with a ton of modules downloaded should only use a 
small amount of memory unless you enable them all (which would affect 
all pages, not just that one).
