Understood. After sleeping it over, I think that the others could need a bit 
rewording. What about:

Web, Mail, News, File Transfer, Access, Wireless, Messanging

Hi Yann, I will try to work through all hints section by section and come up 
with a list like the one above as well as tag the entries as appropriate. Do 
you have anything in this direction, I could work on?

Updating all packages with menu-files is not possible pre-sarge. updating only 
a few will probably kill the optimized menus completly. Would you think it 
possible to create an overlay which is used by menu instead of the files 
in /usr/lib/menu/? Since all menus carry dependency information, this could 
be a seperate package containing all modified menu-files.

Regards, David
