I would like to disagree here. The Debian menu, by default, has only
three levels (four in the "Applications/Communication" section).
Granted, that's one more than the Gnome menu, but it's not *that* much.

About the crowdedness, you know about the "hints" feature which allows
to reorganize the menu in a more sophisticated way, right?

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
