This brings up a related issue, namely translating the name you see on the
module screen to the module name and the project name. Pet peave, a module
whose purpose is to add a new field type to CCK but doesn't have CCK in its
name and doesn't come up in the group of CCK stuff on the Update status

And if you find one that is annoying open a bug issue in the issue 
queue of the project.  I usually prefer the admin/by-module UI if I'm 
concerned with administration of one particular module.  I also create 
an Administration menu and rearrange the menu items to my liking.  So, 
regardless of who does what, I use the dynamic menu to suit my needs.
