Presumably, the content in the second navbar is dictated by the page
active (although I am judging this off xris's design). I don't see any
reason why a two-column page would be at a loss for space or prove a
threat to usability, but the second navbar can always be brought back
down to the left if you prefer.

The colors are something I intend to finish as soon as possible, and
they will be in line with myth's colors. No red or black or anything
that myth users wouldn't expect.
