I think that it is hard to find something in the KDE Menu for new users, as it 
contains many, many entries (see for example the SuSE menu). 
So if you have to find something in a large amount of data you usually need a 
search functionallity. Offering the user an easier way to find think is IMHO 
a increase in useability. 

Maybe we can get somefeedback from the useability list on this topic. I CC'ed 
kde-useabillity. What do the useabillity guys think of this feature?
