Re: [Proposal] Remove some stuff from Application menu

This is all stuff that has been discussed alot in bugzilla
(there is a menu tidyup metabug in the panel bugzilla somewhere)
and it's not likely to be sorted out until 2.5, also it includes
tidying up the cc and integrating the gst.

So I'm only going to briefly reply to each point

I think it's important to have avaliable from the menus - just not
from the applications menu. I was thinking that it would be useful
to improve the nautilus go menu and add it to the menu panel like

Go ->
        Home Folder
        Cd Creator
        Floppy Drive
        Dvd Drive
        Cdrom Drive
        Digital Camera

See above

Needs to be properly merged - hopefully this will be accomplished by the
new menu spec from

Bugzilla discussion still ongoing. One idea is to rename Actions
to Desktop and then have Desktop->Preferences
