the argument was that additional folders/menus waste screen real estate. my
counter-argument was that they don't, because the panel already takes up so
much screen and putting something else on it doesn't waste any more.

they do take up PANEL real estate, however. but I still - and after having
done that experiment with gnome-newbies even more than before - believe that
we HAVE to show the new gnome user that it's possible or he will never even
try to reconfigure.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
