I agree alphabetical sort is the most reasonable by default and it does
the trick. But it is improvable. I agree that before changing anything
we shold come up with an alternative satisfying structure.

I'll see if I can come up with a proposal. I'm writing some stuff to
explain GNOME to total newbies and anyway I need to structure all these
microtools' explanations in a way they understand and find sensible.

Since Ubuntu has started patching the menus I'll try to keep discussing
here because if the argument aren't convincing to Ubuntu they won't be
to GNOME either.  :)

Absolutely, thanks.
