Implement Clean URLs in the Admin

WordPress’ admin console with all the .php URLs is a rat’s-nest of usability issues.

I propose we consider adding in a Front Controller and make simplified, clean and hackable URLs for the admin. This would be a combination of retrofitting existing admin URLs where there UX is salvagable, and creating new admin page functionality to replace some of aging admin functionality in WordPress.
