I never said it was do-able, on the docs area we are currently discussing
man pages... Oddly enough they are linked in an abstract way. My thoughts
are along your lines, as to if this is possible is doubtful. But stating
"it is the way we have always done things" is not the answer. I'd like this
discussion to continue, as it just makes sense to do it that way.

I've not trialled ubuntu 13.10 out, so with all their lenses etc. I cannot
state what order they list applications by.

As a separate note, do you still have the facilities to make a community
re-spin of an ISO?
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1227202 needs an ISO
spinning to see if the zram bug is solved.
