The WebKonsept Welcome plugin is basically just an editable page.
It handles the root of the page and simply pulls a text from storage, displaying it to the user.
On the administration side of things, it's just checking editing permissions and storing the text. Nothing fancy or all that exciting, it just does a single job as well as possible.
The title of the page can be set as well, of course, so it doesn't have to be called "Welcome" in the menu.
If you want people to land on the "Gingerbread horse" page, then feel free to rename it all you like.
