I always believed in the breadcrumbs :)

If it doesn't cause other problems, I'd like to request the

I've found that the breadcrumbs are not always redundant.   Any time you
choose something from a list and then from there you need to use another
page with a list, you can get lost and need a lot of clicks to get
back.  I think the only time this is a problem right now is when adding
a Role to an Application.  But it will likely come up again in the future.

Let's say I need to add several roles to an application.  I'm in
Applications --> MyApp --> Roles --> Add Role.

To add a second role without breadcrumbs, I need to go all the way out
and do several clicks:
Click Applications on lefthand menu
Find my App again in the (possibly long) list
Click on Roles again
Click Add

If I still had breadcrumbs this task would always be two clicks instead
of four or more.  Also, forcing you to go all the way out to the
lefthand menu and re-navigate the list seems wrong.

Thanks stan, i'll look into stuff and your role bug.
