"A simple Gnome interface designed as a mime-sink for BitTorrent files.
 gnome-btdownload allow a user to download files using bittorrent,
 a scatter-gather network.
 Not a front-end, more-or-less just a session dialog. See bittorrent
 for more information."

I think the package description makes it pretty obvious why it's not
present in the menu.


"Alacarte is an easy-to-use menu editor for GNOME that can add
 and edit new entries and menus. It works with the freedesktop.org
 menu specification and should work with any desktop environment
 that uses the spec."

Presumably people that want to edit their menus can launch this
application using the launcher.  It's not really the average
everyday tool...


PS: My vote for default GNOME browser definitely goes to Epiphany;
Firefox^WIceweasel comes nowhere close to feeling like a real GNOME
