I know that it doesn't exist. Gentoo is basically a file manager, so it
generally could be put to "Apps/Tools", some might even want to put it in
"Apps/Viewers" or even "Apps/Shells". I personally think that it would best
fit in an "Apps/Browsers" or "Apps/Disk" cathegory, but that is not created
yet. Other file managers' and disk-related applications' menu entries are
scattered in various sections, anyway, so I think we should establish that
a new section.

"Apps/Disk" would seem a good place to put gentoo, filerunner, mc, gmc, plus
it could take wmmount and asmount(?) , along with fbrowser, kfm, and other
similar programs. This list seems big enough to warrant a new section AFAICT.
And other menu sections would be freed of these off-topic items, which would
be positive, especially in case of sections that are already too big to fit
on screen on resolutions like 640x480 :(

And if we choose "Apps/Browser", then we could add all those 15 web browsers
to it :) to share the load with "Apps/Net".

I'm CC:ing the policy and devel lists, to see what do people there think of
it. If there's any positive responsive, consider this idea about Apps/Disk
a Policy proposal.
