Could you leave it in as a plugin, but not enable it on your own
desktop? I think further's definitely getting to the point of meaning
different things for different people, and is spiralling out of being
code for Evan's Desktop. :-)

Great idea. I do sick things with terminal launching buttons, though,
which is why I use the launcher. A button for a long terminal and a
short terminal, both transparent, ssh'd to kosai and attached to screen
-dr {irc,mail}, for example, and others for local terminals etc..
