[wp-hackers] Moving 'Upgrade' to Dashboard Menu

This does not work at all,
The way Wordpress is built - the menu items (posts/pages/links/etc)
don't actually exist. When you click on one of these you're taken to
the first submenu item, which is usually "edit".
The only time this doesn't happen is for the Dashboard and Comments
menus, because they have no sub items.
By adding "upgrade" (or update) as a sub-menu of dashboard, you are
automatically taken to this page when clicking on the parent
"dashboard" menu item.
In short there is now no way to get back to the dashboard inside the
admin panel unless you edit the url manually.
For the record, I'm not in favour of moving the upgrade menu item at
all. It is a TYPE of tool, so it should really stay under Tools, it's
not a TYPE of dashboard. Simply moving it higher up the menu does not
make it more usable.
