better quicklinks scalability

Quicklinks are the user-defined (and per-user) part of the navibar - (in the default theme) they are rendered to the right of the configured (and common) navibar links.
Users can use them for server-stored and easily/quickly accessible bookmarks - that's why they are called quicklinks.
Quicklinks don't scale to large amounts currently, because the navibar gets rather ugly then because it wraps and occupies a lot of screen estate.
Can you think of and implement a better solution?
Please keep in mind:
- they are called quicklinks because they are quick to use (in the current approach it is just one click)
Note: in moin2, the UI for quicklinks might be still missing or broken, but you can use some fixed configured list for experimentation:
user_defaults = dict( # ... start with a complete copy of this value from MoinMoin/config/default.py ... quicklinks = [u"foo", u"bar", u"baz", ], # ... )
Deliverables: patch or changeset
See tags. You maybe don't need all skills, it depends on your idea how to solve the problem.
