 > Testing the patch, I noticed that after toggling the menu, the next tab
 leads to the "Skip to content" links and only after that to the actual
 menu items. This is due to how we have structured the menu. This happens
 in Twenty Thirteen and Fourteen as well.
 > I wonder if switching position with the menu toggle would a) make sense
 and b) wouldn't blow up in terms of back compat.

 Where would you move the menu toggle and/or skip link?

 Ideally, from an accessibility standpoint, we'd do something like to

 The issue here is similar to what obenland described. If you're on a touch
 device and moving around, listening for feedback, it's pretty easy for
 that Skip to Content link to get in the way of getting to the menu items
 because of source order.

 However, I would hate to break themes for people. That's not cool. The
 skip link/toggle position isn't perfect, but not bad either. The skip link
 does come before the actual menu items. I'd say leave it, but make the
 effort to improve change things in default themes from here on out.

 A big bug was fixed here and that's the important part.
