Beware: they are outdated (more than 10 years old, and many items in
our menus were changed since then).  More importantly, Xah is known
to be violently anti-FSF/GNU, and even anti-RMS, let alone full of NIH
tendencies.  His recommendations are rarely provided with any
rationale except "the current situation is silly/stupid", and should
therefore be taken with a grain of salt.

That said, it is of course okay to consider the ideas that make sense,
but not just "because Xah said so".

Separate bug reports for each item or a group of related items,
please.  Let's not have one bug report about dozens of menu items
unrelated to each other.
