 Replying to [comment:6 nacin]:
 > Reopening for consideration. Could we re-tool how the POST data is
 structured on the menus page to possibly get under the max_vars,
 max_array_depth and max_array_index_length defaults, for a reasonable
 number of menu items?

 In my experience it is `max_vars`, which at 200 by default limits you to
 fewer than 20 menu items.

 We could boost to about 50 the number of menu items allowed by default
 Suhosin were we to save each menu item's properties separately and
 therefore limit the overall requested variables to a few necessary
 properties: item id, order, and depth.

 So the questions seem to be:
  * Is the current harm worth reworking the system?  I'm ambivalent.  It
 might be good for other reasons, such as reducing network latency and
 unnecessary CPU and DB work.  But it doesn't seem like there's been too
 much complaining so far.
  * Does Jane or someone else with say-so in the UI department sign off on
 the idea of  saving individual menu items separately from each other and
 from the item order/depth?
