I couldn't resist and took a look at ctb sources before holidays too.
I agree, it doesn't look very difficult, even for a guy like me who doesn't code in C since 10 years ago .

I think the App view could be similar to the way Shortcuts works (filetype==desktop) but filtering by directory_path.


Regarding the configuration,
you could create a new entry in "/usr/share/ctb/settings/" (f.e. "views.desktop") which run a simple program showing a listview with checkboxes for each type of view. Settings could go to /etc/viewrc or to gconf keys and CTB would read them.
