Do you mean that you would like a "Start this application" button added 
to the GoPlay! application browser (and its variations too in recent 
incarnations, like GoLearn!, GoAdmin!, GoOffice! and others)?

If so, then I think that is an excellent idea (also because I got that 
same idea back when I initially tried GoPlay!).  I suggest you file a 
bugreport against the goplay Debian package proposing such button.

If you meant something else, then sorry for being thickheaded: Please 
try rephrasing again :-/

I hope so too :-)
