(Hello, I'm new on the list although I've been reading/lurking for a
long time now). Yes, smart idea. And there is also the case of
"software": for example, when there is only one user (and sudo/root),
the Switch user option is not relevant, is it?

Anyway, as an average joe, I'd rather prefer useless/removable options
to hidden ones, especially regarding the most important part of the GUI,
since it may be destabilizing.
