I think that's an absolutely terrible criterion to group things by. GTK+/GNOME
apps work fine under KDE, Qt/KDE apps work fine under GNOME. While for basic
tasks, there's usually both a KDE and a GNOME app (still I'd like the choice!
OnlyShowIn sucks!), for more advanced tasks there's often only one application,
and I think that's a good thing. It doesn't make sense to waste time rewriting
all applications in Qt/KDE for no reason other than "GNOME sucks"
(independently of whether that's true or not) or the opposite. So I think the
current "clutter" (as you call it), i.e. offering all applications in the same
menu, is the best solution.
I'm just pitching the idea, but maybe it would be interesting to keep the
applications listed under a single menu but sort by function as well.
--- Media Players --- <-- Dividers are grey
--- Authoring Tools ---
--- Sound Tools ---
PulseAudio Device Chooser
PulseAudio Volume Meter
--- Misc. ---
One problem I can see already though is there would be a lot piling up
under the Misc. section.
