Another issue with the current about gnome box is that it is completely
hidden from the user in the panel context menu. There was some talk
about adding a help menu to the foobar that would include a launcher for
yelp, pehaps a launcher for bug buddy and the about gnome box. The
usability team never really came to a solution if it should be added or
not. The patch is really trivial and imo constitutes a ui change rather
than a feature addition so i think we could sneak it in to gnome2.2 if
we decided that we wanted it. I can hunt down the bugzilla bug later if
need be.
