a nice thing should be the .hide that tigert mensioned above. 
Plus the ability of right click on an icon on the desktop and select
'Don't show this on desktop'.
This adds the entry in the .hide file
It's still visible in Nauti. Yous should also be able to reverse the
process from a Nauti window by right clicking any item in the ~ dir:
'show/hide this item on desktop'
and voila.
