I agree and would like to extend this screen and make the api's more 
flexible but one of the current design requirements or limitations when 
I did this work for 1.4.1 was that it had to work with Javascript 
disabled. We could continue to enhance the API's and Account Admin 
screen the same way where no panels effectively get displayed as new 
framed set of fields (fieldset) if JS is disabled. I think it's a good 
idea to still have a non-js enabled view - do all agree?

Another requirement I have seen is being able to not display certain 
tabs and while that can be done by removing the content from the 
templates, maybe we should have config options to remove them.
