If you can find a way to detect if the user is using another launcher that 
supports the features, leave it in and then if the feature isn't supported by 
the given menu being used, hide them. This allows people that like 
the "classic" menu to have the behaviour they are used to work, while not 
causing confusion for kickoff users.
