As I add mods I find that my "launcher" icon (the one the lets me see more than 16 icons) is being pushed out.

Is there an app that allows you to manage your own icon priority? Something with an interface that drags and drops like the ipod configuration tool for editing icons?

There's no app that I'm aware of, but you can do it manurally. Go to System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app and look for DisplayOrder.plist. Copy it to your desktop and open it with an HTML editor, or you can use Notepad. What you need to look for is <string>APPLICATION NAME GOES HERE</string>. Move around the order of the applications within the <string> and </string>, save it, upload it back onto your phone, and then restart.

By the way, if you want to also reorder the third party apps, this is a bit more tricky. You need to get the <string> code from the Info.plist file that is in the specific app's directory on the phone and move it over that way. Make sure you write in everything else that goes before and after the <string></string> like your Apple certified apps in the DisplayOrder.plist (they all start <dict> and end </dict>). Let me know if you have any questions.

Ok first you just need to navigate to that directory I mentioned earlier. To get there you need to use a program like Manzana, iBrickr, or WinSCP. If you get that far, my earlier post should make a lot more sense.

ifuntastic allows you to reorder home screen layout by drag and drop. Don't know if it plays well with 3rd party apps though.

If you have the installer.app installed on your iPhone, why not use rSBT? This app allows you to reorder your home screen the way you want it.
