Excellent.  If you could add the ellipses (...) too I'd appreciate it.

I'd like to get your changes in as it is so difficult to get everyone
to agree and then start to make more changes as we can get some
sense of what changes are uncontraversial and people are happy with.

I thought it had been changed already but abbreviations like Utils and

I'm really not sure, I think that might require a rethink of what
categories are needed to accomodate third party plugins and scripts.
(I'd be tempted to dumpt it beside Colour Cube analysis because I use
both for similar puroposes but I know that isn't a good answer).

I didn't want to mention it earlier but as you intend making another
patch I should mention you used _U as the mnemonic for both Unsharps.

A lot of my opinions have been added to the Wiki page but it doesn't lend
itself to discussion or otherwise sorting out which ideas people really
want, I suppose I should try and catch people on IRC sometime this week
and thrash out which other ideas people feel strongly about rather than
cluttering the list with too many little details and slowly churning
through them one by one.
