well as i understand this right now, its up to the distributions and
administrators to come up with a workable solution for large scale
system deployment. which, oh joy, will lead to a myriad ways of
reinventing the wheel. as a open source desktop administrator in a
working environment where people cut/edit audio files for radio shows i
stumbled across this roadblock too. the panel menu needs a serious
rework, as there is no way to maintain it, order it hierarchically apart
the alphabetical listing, or introduce own menus without obscure
gnome developers should come up with something to solve such issues, and
not give all work to system administrators, telling us it is not gnome's
but our problem.
