I've got no real opinion on where the "BETA" text ends up, put it where it
I agree that the footer should go back to what the original mockups from BCN
included (maybe we haven't gotten there yet).
Also agree that a logged in user should be able to go back to the home page,
I was confused by this a few days ago.
I like the idea of collapsing user - inbox - logout. See Gmail and Twitter
Lastly the dropdowns should respect hover. Do note that right now you can
open both at the same time which is really strange.
