Well, the reason I put a few example menuentries in the menu package
was to provide some sort of skeleton/example for other developpers
so that we at least don't have a lot of different paths to the
same things (like having both /Editors, /Apps/Editors, /Apps/Text/Editors,
But Sound sounds like something new, and indeed deserves some discussion.
I think I'd agree with Joey about /Apps/Sound (We already have /Apps/Graphis),
and I don't think/hope it will result in a mess of sub-menus.

Difficult, as I don't think the menu package will be easily ported
to slackware/SunOs/whatever. But who knows?
