Hopefully Debian Desktop will be able to simplify the menu hierarchy and UI
so that all this becomes less confusing.
Joey, I have tossed my hat in the ring as a volunteer to help design the
menu layout for Desktop Debian. You mentioned in a postscript in your email
that you worked on the original menu hierarchy. May I call upon your wisdom
and experience and feedback when I go to help out with the DD menu design?
