I don't know if we should remove "More" or not, but I agree with that
point. Even more, I tend to think that most of the applications I
installed manually go to "More", and that is really illogic.

When I install Pidgin because I want to use it instead of Kopete, why
the logic in having "Internet > Kopete" and "Internet > More >

At least, if we could track which apps were used ONCE, and put the
others in "More" first, that would be great.
