Also, this discussion seems to go beyond re-arranging the menu, and
towards redefining the whole concept of workflows.

Set suggested we go from 5 down to 2 - "audio" and "visual".
Following the freedesktop standards, we are now down to 3 instead. 

Doesn't seem like video can easily be put under graphics, since it is
really a fusion of audio/graphics.

There's nothing about development in there yet, as also was suggested.
Stuff like puredata, supercollider, or web design. Where should this go?
