                                        I thought about putting the text on the button as well. This could be very attractive, but has one disadvantage. If you decrease the size of the panel (say 20-22) the resulting scaled down artwork provides poor text legibility.

are we not going to have applications/places/system like ubuntu-gnome?
if possible, i'd go for this solution, because it is already a standard 
on ubuntu-gnome, and i'm sure they have spent lots of thought on it.

i'm against a button without text, because in the documentation, we need
to tell people where to click. it needs an actual name, so we can write 
stuff like 'click on Applications->Office->AbiWord'. i'd call it 'Start
Menu' or similar...

whatever is decided here, i hope is decided soon, because i will have to
change all the menu entries  in the documentation...
