Subject Re: Documenting Tool Permissions

Sounds reasonable.  I don't remember exactly what "configure" gives access
for across all tools.  If it's fairly standard (e.g. accessing the admin
options for tools) then perhaps we'd want to keep it as that (although I
don't know what the difference between admin & configure would be then),
and keep save_searches as a separate perm since it's not an admin option
