Hi David,
     Just move the relevant objects to whatever category you think they belong, or reorganize the entire thing and change the categories.  Then put it in the patch tracker on sourceforge.

I've attached a reformatted version of the intro patch, if you want to use it as a template.  I added some objects that were missing, like 
[drawsymbol], and the expr family, but haven't got around to reorganizing 
anything within the categories.
