You're right. It is just outdated UI thing. Working on it...

Why there must be a main module? Aren't all modules at the same level?

Max, do you mean, that the "real module UI" will replace the Main Module
page (and the Modules dialog) and handle all modules on a equal level?
If so, I wait patiently :)

Another module question:
Currently, when defining module dependencies, always all modules are
listed, so it should be easy to create circles. This must be prevented
in a elegant way. My idea is following:
1) the list for all modules must be sorted by dependencies (e.g. the
core module, that does not depend on other modules, at the top),
2) when defining modules, only modules "above" the current module are
allowed and displayed,
3) one should be able to move modules at the same dependency level
up-and-down the all modules list as long as the rule "dependent modules
are below" is fulfilled.

I do not know whether Max meant that (I belive he did :)), but yes that is
how it is going to be.

The future UI will prevent this from happening.

Why does one want to move them up and down?

To be able to sort them for a better structure. Note, our current
project has approx. 35 modules at the moment and after a lot of
refactoring this number will increase.

But this particular issue is not that important for me as the first
two points.
