Just to throw in my 2 cents (Canadian, being roughly equal to .0002 US cents):

If the linux sound apps page gets redesigned, I would really like to see a  
format similar to the current one remain.  ie big list pages of really brief  
descriptions (essentially a big list of links).  The "everything" page is also  
nice.  Something like freshmeat with an obscenely small amount of information  
per page would be a downgrade IMO.

In short, thanks.  With all this talk of the page sucking, I'd like to point  
out that it's an incredibly useful thing, and without it things would be a lot  
worse. So, thanks be to Dave.
