Very nice.  I like it a lot.

While I think we could use some re-evaluations of the categories, presenting
them in this way works well I think.  I think we won't have such a deep or
wide hierarchy that displaying them all will be too confusing.  The thing I
really like about this is that I can figure out exactly what's going on in one
quick glance, and can probably find my way to the section I care about very
easily (certainly much more easy than today).

I wonder, would it be possible to put tooltips on those menu items?
