The first menu move give a good impression but, there is always a but,
the text is to big the colomn consume lot of space and i some case
menu text flow on 2 lines (e.g. active akismet and check it's menu
entry added to plugin section... actualy the menu is 16px i tried 14
and it's better... i qould like to have a 12px but i suppose for most
people would be to much little

Maybe would be great for this crazyhorse testbed to try a full
conversion to ems maybe, cause 16px is the stardad font size for IE
and FF and i suppose quite all browser, and large percentage of end
users never change this, cause ooften they doesn't know how to do)
making the base font 0.625em to have a base font of 10px  so will be
easy set in a tipical environment havin 1.2em pfor a 12px 1.4 for 14px
etc, I'm testing it actually in a new version of wordpress italy site
(testbed not online)
