Dear Peter,

Do you know how many .desktop files in Debian use the categories
Electronics or Engineering? If there are not enough to nicely populate a
menu, it may be better to patch them to relocate them somewhere else.

If there are enough, there is a third way of having an optional menu:
the Custom Debian Distribution. In the Debian-Med CDD, we have an extra
"Med" menu, and which user gets it is configured through debconf.

Have a nice day,
