I'd like to see the clean up effort go deeper than just the menu
names. I want the naming AND the grouping to be more consistent
between the menus and the gui-fied package management tools, to make
it easier for users to remove default applications after installing
additional prefered software. Maybe consistent use of name and generic
name in a tag will be enough, but I would find it interesting as well
if the same application menu structure that users see in the main menu
could be navigated as well to do application package removal. Being
able to navigate the same menu structure to do application
removals(maybe even installs), makes the naming issue somewhat moot,
since you can do package removal based on the existance of the
.desktop file and not care what the label string actually is.

anyone want to have a DKMS discussion?

Go deeper than that, and lets clean up some of the failover xinit logic as well.
Do we really want RunWM --FvwmMWM being used in the default xinit logic?
