	Hmm...  I don't think this is right.  Look at RPM for a moment.  I
have installed a number of RPMs.  Now, I like them from RedHat the best
since I know the application will integrate itself happily with the rest
of the RPMs.  

	Other RPMs can violate the linux file system standard, or cause
other problems.  Sometimes I use them anyway because I have to.  So what?
Well, RPMs are listed in a tree format.  And I've seen some really crazy
tree nodes.  I think the same thing will happen to any menu.
