That requires to modify Trac source code . Now that we have an issue
tracker , is it a good idea to use it ? If so, please feel free to
identify all enhancements needed, create a ticket, and assign it to
olemis (<= /me ;) .
I think that's a good way for me to remember this needs to be done
(... later ... maybe next week ;)

I c your point . I just thought users should know what section of the
site they are browsing at a given moment . If «Apps» is highlighted
then users still might not know «relatively quickly» ... as there're
many options in there .

Maybe it's my version of Firefox ... not sure whether it's a big deal or not .
