[p2pu-dev] Feedback: Rearrangement of Edit User/Profile

One great thing about having the inbox up there is that it has the
indicator that we have new messages. Though... we could pull that
indicator to the person maybe so that we keep that. That indicator
needs CSS work anyway.

An indication that the user logged in could be the person's name and
the log out text like (and this is pseudocode since I don't have the
methods in front of me):

user.displayName [messages.newCount] [V dropdown] | Logout
Menu items like dashboard, view profile, edit, etc

I've seen "Account" or "My [insert name of site here]" instead of the
person's username/display name too.

Search could maybe go above the nav or in it. I figure we'll have an
advanced search too?

[ search.... ] (go)
__advanced search__

Or should we have
[ search.... ] [x] people [ ] groups (go)

Would mean more real estate. But we could limit the search based on
url with the google engine stopgap and later the more permanent

So maybe move the user/log in/create account stuff above the nav bar?
And put the search where that is now? What about the language box?
Make it drop down (since we hopefully will get more languages)?

If this all would be easier with a screenshot, I can do that :)
