OK, good. Now I succeed in creating a group for my application (w/
readme, doc, app itself and uninstall links). I can also add the app
link to the Development system menu. I think it's the best compromise,
as putting all my links in Development menu would be messy (and since
it's alpha sorted, wouldn't be nice), and if I don't add my app group,
the user won't be able to uninstall or read the doc from the menus.
IMO it would be nice if a .directory could support Categories= so that
it's added to a category system menu directly. Would that be a feature
request to submit or did I miss something?
