Konstantin, since you wrote the current "Programs" page, can you add that feature to the display (well, when you have time). I guess we
event don't have to change the subdirectory structure (which might lead to incopatibilities), but just show a program if the "Start command"
is non-null. If there is no start command, it does not make sense to start that program, so it can be hidden.
