I'd say less than 1% of our users know about this feature :-) And
"knowing" doesn't mean "using".
My point is that people can use g-k-m even if it's not part of the
desktop anymore. It sounds wrong to keep g-k-m in the desktop only
because of this feature.
[oh, and really, this is not about "killing" g-k-m, but just removing it
from the desktop suite]
