This is a deliberate new item. Item3023
(configure not user friendly) still stands.
I have the opinion that the accordion interface does not work for configure. The panes are too large.
I would like to propose to have the blocks accessible from a conventional left bar.
I need some help in putting the links there. I can first make a placeholder left bar, we can put the links in later.
As some enhancements are checked in already, this should go in the release notes for 4.1.0 and a new item opened for further checkins.
