I don't think that's a good idea. You don't change the background that
often and that's better to have short menus. You can dnd to the desktop
or the background capplet which is simple enough. You can also an option
on the desktop when right clicking to change the background.

Mounting an iso is not a "standard" action, that's probably not a good
candidate for the context menu. Maybe dnd to the computer place should
do this or something like that.

Right, for hoary there was not good option for the feature freeze. We
will reconsider that for breezy.

Read the archive list, that has been discussed several time.

What is "fstab" ? That should "just work".

Right, rather that than 14/.

Not easy to do due to the patents issue.
