BTW, I have been meaning to mention this for a while now... diffuse is in /dev, IMO it should be in /x-dev

:) There are rather too many things that can be interpreted in different ways. For instance, should Seamonkey or Firefox be in /net, or in /x-app?

In the case of diffuse, I tend to look on /x-dev and being x related developemnt stuff, not development tools that use X, but that's just me....

Yes, it is often up to interpretation, but one must go with the simpler logic, I think. I also never liked x-apps because it is too much of a catch-all, I would prefer, IMHO, a more fine-grained classification based on use, with stuff like /office, /multimedia, etc, etc...
