that makes things harder as some parts of menus are dynamically created and
generated by code. they are not just static things. maybe in e18 we will look
at providing more flexibility there. but history has taught me that 99% of
people never change such a thing - even if it is configurable, so we should
focus on making the default really good and smart - and then later when we have
not so many pressing things to do with e, come back and look at making the menu
more flexible.
