Improve Admin Bar UX

The sub-menus on the admin bar are a bit hard to use. They are too "jumpy" especially if there are several sub-menu levels. If we have jQuery and hoverIntent on them, the UX becomes a lot better.

Adding hoverIntent to the admin bar menu is a big improvement (stops menus from annoyingly popping open when you're just moving your mouse over the admin bar).

I wonder though whether the timeout could be reduced by just a tiny bit? There's a delay that, while short, is noticable.

Agreed on the slightly slow timeout.

Replying to nacin:

Agreed on the slightly slow timeout.

Patch which shaves a tad off the timeout for slightly more responsive menus.
