I don't thing that's a good argument, because you get used to the
submenus quickly. I really liked them. We worked hard to get everything
right, filed bugs against packages that were not inside of the submenus,
and now we throw all this away?

I have a pretty standard install of F10 and I have 28 menu entries for
preferences. A screen with 600 px height and two panels can only take 18
menu entries, this means that we'll have to remove 10. This isn't
possible, at least without ether a) removing stuff that really is needed
or b) major changes in Gnome upstream.
