The submenu is a nuisance.  It doesn't serve any useful purpose that I
can see and it breaks the logical flow of the menus.

The layout of the Debian menu is much different than the fdo menu so
there isn't really a clean mapping between them. Debian for example puts
graphic viewers, pdf/postscript viewers, and movie viewers (iirc) in the
same category, for the fdo menu all three are broken out into separate
categories and are in entirely separate sections. FWIW - Gnome menu
breaks out the Debian submenu exactly the same as KDE. It would be really
nice if Debian menu would switch to fdo menu soon since fdo menu
categories are much more logical than the current Debian set amongst
other improvements that moving to fdo would buy us.

It would be even nicer if Debian's KDE allowed the sysadmin and users
to choose whether they wanted the KDE, Debian, or both styles of menu.
