The one problem I've always found training people how to use MiniPanels is that the local tasks look like a breadcrumb trail. This really needs to be changed. The main Page Manager functionality uses vertical tabs, so changing to that UX would be idea, but almost *anything* else would be better.

I realize that the bigger issue right now is that the Mini Panels UX is built as a CTools wizard and that the longer-term goal of Mini Panels would be to rebuild the UX completely, but I strongly believe that tweaking this one interface element would go a huge way to improving the life for people new to using Mini Panels.

Thanks!!
