I appear to have been confused. Where I was talking about All ... I was
relating to a 'button' or some kind of selector at the top of the screen.
Not a meta-package/category called All. This second case I was indeed aware
of your comment that you didnt have to call it All, but then I also was
under the impression that you didnt think that the meta-package idea was
nescerly a good one in the first place. Therefore I assumed that in this
case you were talking about a button of some kind. As I am mistaken the
point is moot.

Again wires are crossed here, I was not talking about the additional screen
method - which I thought had been shot down rather quickly and didnt bare
*then again I also didnt think you would be haing multiple screen choices in
that model either* ... Irrelivent since that idea isnt going anywhere.

*Sigh* given the number of ways in which everyones missinterpreteing
everyone ... perfectly understandable...

Ignore my other email - since its not going to help.
