Okay, actually, my criticism of Install being the top Plugin Menu item  
just got a lot bigger.

You've changed the link for anything that is a sub-menu item of  
plugins.php.  WHY does WordPress insist on these completely arbitrary,  
completely USELESS, plugin-breaking changes?

Zero purpose, and how many plugin developers are going to have to push  
out new versions just to do fixes (and %^*$#%! forked code) for this  
kind of thing?

This is the kind of thing that gives WordPress a bad reputation for  
breaking plugins.  This is the second thing I've seen in 2.7 that  
breaks stuff for no reason -- the first being the pointless changes to  
the output of get_plugin_data().

What a damned waste of time.  AGAIN.
