Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Many of the alternative
terms that were suggested were culture-specific and so are best avoided.
Some of the comments also pointed out that although the term wizard is
used by other desktops, it does not describe what the item in question
actually is. Other comments pointed out the translation difficulties
with the term wizard.
So, on balance it seems that assistant is the best term to use in this
case. If there are no strong objections, I'll go ahead and add
assistatnt to the GDSG.
