i think xdiagnose doesnt need to be shown in any menus (though that
would be a matter of the maintainer (hey bryce !) to hop into this
discussion and comment, i dont think the .desktop file was added just
because it is shiny, there is surely a reason for it's existence)

xterm is used by many people doing development on ubuntu as a preferred
terminal over gnome-terminal, so i dont think we can or should hide it
if we don't want to put off people using ubuntu as a platform for their
development tasks.
