Hey Chip,
wp_list_pages is really cool, I use it alot. The Problem is; how do I 
tell my customer that he can't add pages that shouldn't go into the 
navigation structure without asking me?

That's the main nav of one of my projects ...  :-(

Also do you change the menu order by tipping 200 numbers into the menu 
order field in the post editor, or how are you able to sort that menu?
