This is evil evil behaviour, and CMFWeblog should definitely not do this,  
it will break anything but a stock CMFDefault site. (This is the good old  
discussion about being CMF compatible vs. being CMFDefault compatible, I  
won't start it again here ;)

Plone 2 also offers per-user prefs pages that are pluggable by Products,  
so there is really no reason to do this either.
