I'm new to the list, so be gentle ;-)

I have nothing against including this plugin, but it does seem sort of
redundant to have a menu with a list of shortcuts that already appear in
Thunar's sidebar. However, I can understand that it would be useful for
those that don't like using Thunar's sidebar for shortcuts (or using it at
all, for that matter).
