It would be nice if there was an action to add an item to the admin menu. I know the admin menu would have to be reworked to include this, but it would be very beneficial. There are several "hacks" that could probably be converted to plugins if this was in place and it would remove the need to mess with code that might accidentally be replaced when a user upgrades. I feel like my whole install might crash from the simple fact that I have modified certain files to include hacks and I worry every time I upgrade that I will mess something up. I know the idea of plugins is to get away from changing the wp code, so this would be a great help.
