Good question. My stated reason was:
"Moved EventCalendar options screen from 'Options' to 'Plugins' section
in the admin interface. This should make it easier to find the tab
immediately after activating the plugin."
Does that make sense? I got the idea from the Askismet (sp?) plug-in.
I've never even heard of WordPress-MU, so I didn't take it into account
when I made the change.
Your objection seems well founded to me. I certainly don't want to cut
out a whole class of potential users. I think I'll move the tab back to
the 'Options' section as you suggest. Anybody else have an opinion?
