[Mapbender-dev] [gsoc09] more static Admin GUI

I'm working with Mapbender for 3 years now and I never customized my own admin 
gui. And I think it's the same for the most part of the user community. So in 
my opinion it would be a good simplification to have these static admin Guis. 
But we should remember to have any possibility to configure these guis in some 
way as there could be the case a user is not authorized to see and use all 
parts of the administration. So I don't know which solutions we could find 
for that (a conf file??). Any suggestions or other opinions?

Best regards
