I also wished I had such an option several times.

As this would raise the number of `create' operations to at least three,
maybe the right thing to do would be to leave `New Window'/`New Terminal'
where they currently are and to add the following sub-menu:

  Create => Folder
         => Empty File
         => Launcher

As it happens two of my brothers have an extra folder on their Windows
desktop where they store all the launchers that they only use
infrequently.  Personally I do not even like to have launchers on the
desktop as I think that's what the panel is for; but if it's possible to
let people chose their own way of doing things without introducing too
much additional complexity (as I think is the case here) I see no reason
why it shouldn't be done.
