For an intro see the mail with the (0/3) in the subject line.

We also started to use some of the application indicators from
applications in the launcher on the left side of the screen.  We use the
application indicator to provide additional menus for the launcher which
we call a quick list.  We're currently choosing which application is on
the panel and which is in the launcher based on heuristics, but we'd
like to have a way for applications to explicitly control that behavior
if they so desire.  What we'd like to add is two properties that are
lists of strings: NotShowIn and OnlyShowIn.  These would work exactly
the same as the same properties in Desktop files where an application
could say "NotShowIn=["Unity Launcher"]" and ensure that they'd never
end up with that item used as a quicklist.  Most applications would
hopefully not find a reason to use this, but for those that would like
the precise control it would be available.
