Actually, if we go with Mark's menu from DapperDesktopGoals, these entries
should appear in it. :-) But if we end up dumping the menu idea, I'd be
happy to put these in the theme.

icons, etc.

Man I can't *WAIT* until we can do this. Dapper+1 I reckon. I would like to
fund this integration feature, if anyone can show they're prepared to do it.
