Removing the item won't fix the lack of menu editor, it won't fix the lack
of .desktop files. It won't encourage a mass fix of these issues. It won't
be a step in the right direction to get us away from the shitty execution
model we're stuck with at the moment. It'll just be another example of our
ability to punch our users in the face without making real progress.

I'm pretty jacked off that my comments have been slighted by reference,
without direct discussion. That's pretty lame.
