WindowManagers/Modules was problematic because, first, Modules are not
WindowManagers and, second, if you have more than a couple of window
managers installed, Modules end up in the middle of the list which make
it difficult to spot (sometimes to the point people will miss this
submenu exist entirely)

I would like to stress that modules menu entries use window-managers
specific 'needs' fields and as such are not bound by the Debian menu
sub-policy (each window manager can choose its own section for modules)
so it is meant only as a best practice and a convenience (because it
will be translated as part of the menu section translation).

However it might be that 'Modules' alone is too vague. Any specific 
improvement welcome.
