Actually there is more reason to remove the third column for me, not
only the svn update problem:
it is unbelievable ugly. It depresses me. I don't see a need for this
navigation.
But of course it is a matter of taste.

This is actually a good improvement. Which leads to the question why
not all status pages are done in plain xml. And so on. While I like
the idea of an easy maintenance registry I can't do that all alone.
Therefore I would like to concentrate to improve the layout step by
step. If somebody else wants to help situation is a bit different of
course. Is one of you guys volunteering to create such a registry?

Cheers
