        Because as a Debian maintainer of gnome programs that work
 even when you are not using gnome, you are not just supporting people
 who use gnome, you are supporting _all_ Debian users.

        Not all of us are using window managers that grok .desktop
 entries.  Indeed, I would think that instead of having gnome menus,
 kde menus, and Debian menus, we should dump the first two before we
 dump the latter, since the Debian menu is something that we control,
 and is something that benefits _all_ Debian users, not just a subset.

What is now proved was once only imagin'd. William Blake
