#18188: Make it easier to go between Dashboard and site edit pages

 Each site in a network install has a Dashboard and a set of "edit" pages

 The "edit" page URLs are '''/wp-
 admin/network/site-''settingsName''.php?id=''id''''' where
 ''settingsName'' is '''info''', '''users''', '''themes''', or
 '''settings'''. The Dashboard URL is '''/''siteName''/wp-admin/''' where
 ''siteName'' is, I think?, the site's '''Path''' field as shown in '''/wp-
 admin/network/site-info.php?id=''id''''' but without the leading and
 trailing slashes.

 The problem is if I am in the "edit" pages and want to go to the site's
 dashboard, I have to click on '''Sites''', then hunt down the site in the
 list, then click '''Dashboard''' while hovering the mouse over the site's
 row. I have a similarly convoluted process to get from a Dashboard to the
 "edit" pages.

 Does this need to be so complicated? It would be nice for network admins
 to see links on every Dashboard or "edit" page that allows the user to go
 back and forth between the two easily.

 Or even better, how about making the "edit" pages just show up as
 additional items in the Dashboard?
