Is it better to not show the menu item (as done in your patch) or to
show it insensitive? I thought the latter was better from an HIG point
of view.

Normally I'd agree.  But I would guess that most Tomboy users who
haven't tried the Sticky Notes applet never will.  So for 80% of our
users, the option just takes up space.  This plugin is really meant as
a migratory path for existing Sticky Notes applet users.

Obviously I can change the patch to disable the option if people think
that follows HIG better.
