Why wouldn't we want this in a stable version.  There will hopefully
be fewer reasons to use it, but anyway to simpify a user's ability
to provide feedback seems like a good idea.  Heck, I'd love to see
some a entry like
    'About GNOME'
if network access is available.  Ideally, containing an overview of
the project, and links to the contributors page of Friends of GNOME,
and a set of pages with projects.  Given the tenuous nature of our
connection to the eventual user base it seems like we should help
pull people in and educate them on how they can help improve things.
