I think this example shows why we need "enough entries" in the menues.
It still must remain a longterm goal to only ship the useful apps we
find and instead of e.g. having 3 apps with different features to have
only one app with all features and working for all users.
That might be a little bit simplistic and might not match OOcalc versus
gnucash where both apps will be needed by users to put them both into
the menues. Users dislike a lot to start apps from the commandline...
