 [attachment:39206.diff] introduces a `setup_network` cap as discussed. In
 single site, it falls back to `manage_options`; in multisite, it falls
 back to `manage_network_options`. While I originally proposed
 `manage_network` as fallback, `manage_network_options` is a better choice
 since that has been previously used as a capability for the menu item in
 multisite and aligns better with the single site fallback.
