Just found something that would probably fit nicely in this project as well.
When you simply list the applications that are under a category you
_could_ get a simple list.. or you could get a (still simple) list
with some more information  which will be nice for new users.
Expereinced users might also find it nice to have.
Take a look at this link . I especially like the reting behind it.
Now another good example of this is the *-look sites (kde-look,
gnome-look, xfce-look etc....
