well, what i do is keep the debian menu in some accessible place (like
ctrl-right button) and then keep a personal menu of my own, with the stuff i
actually use, on the right button where it's convenient. that way i get the
best of both worlds -- a menu entry for everything under the sun in case i
forgot about something, and a small convenient menu for my everyday tasks.

i'd like to make it possible to load the debian menu only when it's first
used, because i suspect it's the thing that slows down my x startup time so
much, but i'm not overly ambitious. maybe later ;)
