I'm not a big fan of the "Favorites" [yeesh, someone tell these
how to spell :P] menu...and from what I understand talking to George
the new menu stuff, this could be eliminated, or at least [which I think
a better option] be replaced by 'My Documents' or 'My Favorite
[or some sort of other variation] which contains docs, bookmarks, news
I think duplicating launchers to apps in there is a bit pointless...I
I would never use it anyway....and would far prefer putting the launcher 
either on the panel or in it's proper position in the menus.

Oh, this would be totally cool and would make the system administrators
life a 
piece of cake if all desktop preferences could have the option of -

 a) getting configuration from a single source  
 b) have the option of being locked down [ie. non-configurable]

I'm not totally sure with the idea that this is a styleguide
what work needs to be done for this to be thought about seriously and
thrown on the blue sky wishlist? - I think it's important.
