I was just wondering if it's possible at all to move the position of a tab inside the admin panel.

Here's what I mean: http://i.stack.imgur.com/XDz8X.png

As you can see I have plenty of custom post types, and each one except for the Slider type has position = 5 ( above media ). Unfortunately some of them are sliding below, and I am looking for a way to have media after all of them again. Not a big deal, just wondering if it's possible. Looked around but couldn't find anything. Thanks.

Just in case anyone might stumble upon this and have the same problem, it can be done by manipulating the admin menu itself, and there's a great tutorial for this http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/creative-coding/customizing-your-wordpress-admin/
