If you look in Defaults.py, you will find

# This variable controls the order in which list-specific category
options are
# presented in the admin cgi page.
    # First column
    'general', 'passwords', 'language', 'members', 'nondigest',
    # Second column
    'privacy', 'bounce', 'archive', 'gateway', 'autoreply',
    'contentfilter', 'topics',

If you copy this to mm_cfg.py, you can then remove various categories
from the list in mm_cfg.py, and those links won't appear and you won't
be able to visit those pages. Two additional things:

You can remove 'general' but you can always go to that page anyway
because it is the default.

If you remove things, the columns will rearrange despite the comments.
