At the moment people have been putting their data starting from the home 
cell, but to some other direction than down on d.2.

In the new "gzz", we can create several slices, where sets of data can be
stored. Probably the layout will also change, so that the user's space
will include the system space somewhere in it.

For example, we list on AllViews all the views we think are at least
somewhat in a usable state - you are supposed to clone the views you want
to use to Views list. In the same way, Actions should contain all the
commands you can run. Mind commands were not included in the latest
release because we didn't want new, possibly unstable features, as the
release was for the new Debian stable. And it's easy to get them working
if you know what you're doing: just create cells with the command names.
