    CHANGES
    -------
    
     + Introduced tabs. First, we extended the menu system to support tabs. Next, a tab was added for every link that was (1) an administrative action other than the implicit 'view' (2) relevant to that particular page only. This is illustrated by the fact that all tabs are verbs and that clicking a page's tab leads you to a subpage of that page.
    
     + Flattened the administration menu. The tabs helped simplify the navigation menu as I could separate 'actions' from 'navigation'. In addition, I removed the 'administer > configuration'-menu, renamed 'blocks' to 'sidebars' which I hope is a bit more descriptive, and made a couple more changes. Earlier, we already renamed 'taxonomy' to 'categorization' and we move 'statistics' under 'logs'.
    
     + Grouped settings. All settings have been grouped under 'administer > settings'.
    
    TODO
    ----
    
     + Update core themes: only Xtemplate default supports tabs and even those look ugly.  Need help.
    
     + Update contributed modules.  The menu() hook changed drastically.  Updating your code adhere the new menu() function should be 90% of the work.  Moreover, ensure that your modue's admin links are still valid and that URLs to node get updated to the new scheme ('node/view/x' -> 'node/x').
