Right now, the alphabetical list is the only way I can find things.

If they get subgrouped, then you have to guess which grouping
they go in before you can find them. 

Also, that still doesn't help with the basic task of learning what
all of the builtins do.  I think anyone trying to learn the language
look at that task as an early milestone.
