Chris Lawrence seems to MIA WRT Debian at least. Perhaps we should not
bother with the technical implementation for the moment and think about
a sane section hierachy first.

Anyway, I was thinking if we could perhaps come up with a unified
section hierachy for both package browsing and menus. Both have to be
redone IMHO and this would simplify things a lot.

I'm not sure that package sections and menu sections can be considered
equal though. Any thoughts?
