Thanks for the feedback.

We ran a workshop at the Living Statues sprint, trying to address all
the issues raised. We have built on top of the current model and Limi's
proposed improvements, and we believe we have found a good solution.

Attached is a mockup of the new top-level menu.

It has the following core attributes:

* It is a single line and doesn't take up much vertical space.
* It has a personal actions panel (Bruce Wayne+arrow)  for account
info/personal preferences like Google's.
* The cogwheel to the right also holds a panel menu, currently only with
site configuration.

The "Edit this page" item expands a panel menu with all the operations
for the current item.
