The new navigation looks great!

Just an opinion. When expanding a database node, I found that it is easier if we can see the list of tables and views directly under the database node (in the same level with Functions, Triggers, etc.), so we don't need one more ajax request (either by clicking on "Tables" node or automatically expanded when only "Tables" node exist under the databse). Anyone have the same thought?
