This was my point and something like this is the solution. I don't give
a damm if a function runs on one machine and a diffrent function runs on
machine number fiftyeleven as long as there is a good navigational way
between them.

Just keep the apperance and content easily avaible.

Keep it visibile as Donald Norman would have said.
