I've always felt myself that "Add/Remove..." didn't make much sense as
a name. The fact that it ends with an ellipsis was always a mystery to
me. Software Library is a much clearer name.

I agree with Oliver that "Add/Remove..." seems to refer to adding or
removing items from a menu, but I think that is the wrong effect to
seek in the first place - what the application does isn't to add or
remove things from a menu (the menu editor does that) but rather to
add or remove programs to the installation.

Wholehearted +1 from me.
