~ Thanks a lot.
~ We may then use the following groups:
~ Others / Extra / Miscellaneous --> Unknown
We believe the term 'unknown' is a bit scary for the average users and
would like to replace it with 'others' or 'extra' or 'misc'. Something
Also, I think the filter *visible* is nice, but might not exactly match
After reviewing, it looks like there will be few packages that after
installation, will not be visible on the device. (such as packages in
the programming category).
Is there a better term to describe this?

| Hmm. Okay, what about we make the filter called "visible" and we only

| Okay for me to add PK_FILTER_ENUM_VISIBLE?
