I think a bit of consistency should be used here:

- evince (a document *viewer*) is to be launched from Nautilus ->
    no GNOME menu entry

- eog (an image *viewer*)should be the same IMHO ->
    GNOME menu entry

If I search for a program, I go to the menu list, not on Nautilus
(obviously this is my personal behavior, which can surely be different
From a new user's one).

Moreover, a well-arranged menu is for sure not cluttered and we're
talking about one more entry, while OpenOffice.ord Draw is listed
twice (Graphics and Office) and the same for Gnomebaker (Accessories
and Sound&Video).

Just my 0.02€, I consider this situation as a very minor one, so I
don't bother more :-)

Thx, bye,
