Thanks for the tip.  I'll try to go check out the GNOME response, but
in any case, I hope the desktop people take this sort of thing more
seriously.  This is another good example of how Linux could easily do

long they wrap into a second column, making it a chore to find any
program.  Surely we can do better with a little thought up front.
