[maemo-community] Command line apps & Extras

What if every CLI app had a standardized "terminal" icon rather than the "box" (or formally "designed") icon in HAM, indicating that it wasn't the 'same' as other GUI apps? (Aside from residing in their own category and having sufficient description/documentation.) This would also make scrubbing through hundreds of apps easier in a visual sense asa well.

Btw, I would consider "daemon" apps as formal CLIs, as regular users can install/"use" them without ever opening the terminal (think Ogg support)... But, they do need sufficient description/documentation in HAM so that users know that nothing is broken when nothing happens (and they can find a launchable app) after install.
