I agree with you, but have one problem with simple text-file menu system,
need to be very good structured to be easy to add/remove items. If you
don't have utils apps to add/remove/edit items, will be very hard to
insert/remove items. ie. you are installing a new rpm, how the scripts
will install the menu item for this application?
