if we can agree to support that the user has several folders on the panel,
we have next to agree on a way to put freshly installed apps in there, and I
think this is the way to go.

one of the related problems is whether this is a property of the folder?
(conflicts are possible!) or a global one? (not easily accessable from the
individual folders).

I think there should be a "simple" and one "advanced" interface for this.
the simple interface gives you a list for every folder and you can click
"yes, put here", "no, never put here" or leave blank. that way you could
already create quite sophisticated distribution policies, like splitting
graphics apps from other apps by having "graphics" set to "no" in the normal
apps folder.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
