Well, shells and terminal emulators are different things, so I'd suggest
a separate "Terminal Emulators" menu.  This name is not longer than
"System Administration", so it should be short enough.

The menu system's practice of calling terminal emulators "XShells" has
long annoyed me.  I don't know what an "xshell" is.  (Yes, obviously it
has an ostensive definition; that's not what I mean.  A real "X shell"
would probably be an interactive, interpreted environment for
the purpose of constructing and issuing raw X protocol requests.)
