I think that HOWTOs need to be listed under the category to which they
belong.  A number of the mini-HOWTOs names pertain to a specialized
brand of hardware that will not be known by many who browse the list.
One advantage of the present system of mini's is that one browses the
regular list first and isn't confused by such names.  HOWTOs that are
subordinate to a "master" Howto should be so designated.  Thus one
solution would be to wait until a good categorization and organization
scheme is available before moving the mini-HOWTOs.  If they need to be
moved before this, I think I would still like to see the word "mini"
