So I really am very interested in the discussion here to discover what the real, root desire is and how it can possibly be implemented...

I would like to suggests something that differ from directory/file system.

Lets imagine something simple, it won't change anthing the way programs are stored, accessed or exectued.

If we could group programs (on program list : shift-0) into 5 or 6 "groups" or "slots". (for example, a slot to group all 3rd party programs, one for finished progs, one for in-progress, one for games, one for libs, one for math progs...)

Users could have only limited actions about slots :
- choose a name of the slot,
- change slot assignation for a programs
- choose to dismis programs display from toolbox menu. To hide library programs for example.

slots wouln't change how programs will run, slots would be just an "attribute" of the program.

to keep it simple,
- slots are not managed from CK (new dropped programs will simply come on first slot.)
- number of slot could be fixed (no slot managements, no creation or deletion...)

It's just an Idea. At least this would be enough for me Wink
I'm trying to propose something better without requiring a huge and deep change in system.
