  VERY nice!  I hate having to open the menu, go to extras, and _then_
scroll through everything I have installed.  Having launchable icons
on the desktop should have been present from day one.  It's something
everyone understands-- click the icon and voila!  The program starts.
It's great in moderation, and having your launcher is perfect; I was
even more excited to see you could put multiple programs in there,
having assumed it was for a single one.  Most of the home applets are
so simplistic my expectations were low I suppose.  My only feature
request is for a "default" icon for programs like minimo that don't
provide one.
