Hi Wichert,

A non-counting -1 from my side, because:

  - Site actions (sitemap, control panel, etc) are "global". "Manage 
portlets" is contextual.

  - Users are likely to look for the place to change portlets next to 
where they see the portlets.

  - We have existing documentation and people have received training. 
Moving a link may not seem like much, but it will cause confusion.

For the last reason in particular, I think this is inappropriate for a 
3.x release.
