Fwd: Education Menu Names
I like the idea, games are already mostly broken down by type, but
breaking them down by age or grade level would be helpful too. We could
just use the current primary/secondary/tertiary as categories. We'd
have to provide custom XDG menu definitions for these to be used though.
Changing the display name to something more user friendly/descriptive
would be a simple change of the .desktop file, wouldn't require custom
menu definitions, and would benefit all desktops that use the XDG
