Grouping preferences/Administration items?

I definitely agree that the non-techie will not understand the
difference between Prefs and Admin. Perhaps renaming "Preferences" to
*username* and "Administration" to "All Users"? Something like that
would be clearer, although then we might want to also rename "System" to
"Preferences"?

We should definitely continue to group similar tasks (keyboard/mouse
etc.) regardless.
