Not meant to be so picky... but I bringing it back this way it's not
_exactly_ back (i.e. 3rd instead of 1st).
Now, since who install the n-o-t package has probably a "need" for a
fast way of launching the terminal, do you think it is possible to
change the package so when I install it the menu item is the first?

For me, I will be adding a keyboard shortcut to terminal ASAP...
