And how do you get to this view then ? I must say that I find things
like start-here: pretty useless. Here the entry point was pretty easy to
find, and it show in both the menu panel, and normal panels with the
foot menu.

What could be done is:
- remove "Connect to server..." icon from the menu
- add a "My Network places" to the applications menu (underneath "Home
Folder"). It would launch network:
- A launcher in network: would launch the "Connect to server" dialog
sans Browse button.

And that's it. What do you think ? Havoc ?
