Can't agree with you there. Even if we put in the link, info on credits, etc, how often are people really looking at the GUI? A few minutes every day? It's not worth the cost, or the CPU cycles wasted to render it.

I agree that this would be the better idea. v5 is going to be a radical change by itself and I think we need to concentrate on that more at the moment. However, it may be a good idea to add more drastic changes to the possible list of "To-do's" so that if any require major server influences they can be built in while the new server is still being designed.
