Hmm, don't think it was me, I'd be happy enough to see them under their
own menu... if nothing else to flesh out the menu bar a bit because only
having two menus looks kind of puny :)  

One problem might be a confusion about what a "Preferences" menu at the
top of the screen referred to.  (Novice) users might feel the need to
look there to change preferences for their current app, I dunno.
