...which is not the #1 reason why Gnome exists. Gnome is not only for
Linux, and Gnome is not only for converted Windows users.

The way desktop icons are handled by gmc at the moment already looks
quite satisfactory to me. One may discuss whether it's logical to have
that functionality in the file manager - I for one think it's OK,
after all, they're files, aren't they? I can live with the way it's
done at the moment.
