Synaptic was moved there at some point after the new "control center"
hit. Perhaps it was so users could access synaptic in a single click. At
any rate, I'm glade it's out of the system tools menu, falling back to
the old policy. 

FWIW (and for those wishing to avoid the control center), you can just
edit the menu and tick on Adminitration and Preferences in the System
menu to regain the ability to access synaptic and other preferences
dialogs in seconds.
