Hi Alan,

Yes, I agree, especially with respect to the path-functionalities. But
nevertheless, as I wrote in response to Sven, we 'are not our users',
and sometimes their concepts are completely different from the ones of
the developers (who are highly involved!). Therefore, I'd really like to
conduct a huge user study with respect to the menu structure - just to
get a few hints on how real users think.

I'll have a look at that!

Thank you,
