Well we could start it by default like we do gnome-power-manager and
gnome-screensaver. While it's not as necessary for a functional desktop
as the g-p-m and g-s, it is a pretty cool program that we might want to
show off. And if people know about it then it may even be really useful
On the flip side, what notification area icons give us is the ability to
start an applet programatically. If we don't want that, and instead want
a way for the user to manual start an applet, it really should be in the
add to panel dialog.
Having a menu item in the menus that doesn't do anything (except maybe
create a flash in the corner of the users eye that they may or may not
identify as tomboy getting added to their notification area) doesn't
seem like a good idea to me.
When speaking of autostarted "deamons" on login - how is palm
syncronisation handled? I don't know about rawhide/fc4, but on FC2, i
have to enter the pilot config dialog for the pc-side "daemon" to be
started, in order to be able to sync my palm. How about evolution, which
seems to be a part in this (as the calendar/todo is synced to it)?
