I agree that having "configure" and "download changelog" available via
the right-click menu would help people, and help folks that do
support.  The alternative is people not noticing these standard ways
of getting information and doing configuration "The Ubuntu/Debian
Way".  But I think these are just the sorts of things we want more and
more users to be aware of.  Now, instead, people suffer with systems
that don't work the way they want, or hack configuration files by hand
in ways that are harder to upgrade.
