First of all, thanks for adding openwrt-hackers to the thread, so we 
could also be aware what's going on. ;)   It was actually You guys who 
wrote last week that You had some internal conversations about how the 
merge tasks would be handled (after a month of all being quiet), and 
said that You're trying to find the time to think it through. I think 
the merge discussions did include the admin stuff not being invisible.

+1 here, if You want to take care of it.

We (Imre and me) will try to hunt down someone who can do some clever 
CSS and stuff.
