A separate tree of categories could be useful. Though maybe it would be
better to name it 'expert/*', and warn in the UI that these are expert
tools that really may require expertise to use properly or safely.

What would it take to have the application manager to have a setting
"Show expert tools" that would show/hide these? Or maybe have these only
installable from the command line?
