Start Menu Organizer in Python

I've implemented a little utility in Python that allows to organize your Start Menu by grouping installed applications into groups. It scans the Current User and All Users entries and moves the folders into groups. The list of application is taken from a simple text files like the following:

doxygen => dev
EPSON => utilities
FeedDemon => web
File Tags => utilities
FileZilla => network
Fraps => 3d

You can grab the script and the list here:

Note: probably is necessary to modify the path to the Start Menu Programs if your locale is not English
I am back at work. Now I can continue to work with the Amazon's S3 tool.

My current tools for S3 are:

A Python command line tool for manipulating the S3 storage (ls/mk/rm)A GUI application for transferring files over S3 based on .NET A WebDAV server written in Python that allows to access S3
The next phase of experimentation with S3 is an IMAP server based on S3 that allows to backup mail. It will be implemented using Twisted and the BitBucket library
