I mean, if you want to see the `extra' info, then menu-browsing stops
(because as soon as you select something from a menu, you've got to
start all over to continue with your menu browsing).

I think the sort of information being discussed is something that users
typically want to see _as_ they're browing, because it's information that
they're using to help them find the program they want.

Would you like fries with that?
