Description

Having admin flag on the general tab in user's profile makes it
way too easy to flip the flag accidentally.

Attached patch adds a separate page to flip the flag.

It's a bit overkill IMO. Why not adding a simple javascript confirmation message when changing the checkbox state?

Why not simply move it in its own "Administrator" fieldset?

Not sure it should remain in "Information" anyway, this is a security related concept, not a general information?

I disagree: a simple Yes/No popup is too easy to overlook or accept accidentally.

Well, maybe that's a way to go. Want me to produce an adjusted patch with a separate tab?

Attached is a reworked version with the admin tab instead of a separate page.
