I am not addressing a specific user category and I am not a gnome
developer. It is just a matter of fact that gnome (and kde, xfce and
lxde, btw) have their own well integrated terminal applications and
thus xterm should not show up as an additional alternative in the
menus *in these desktop environments*.
It may still show up in openbox, windowmaker and whatever. I am merely
suggesting to add "NotShowIn=GNOME" to the desktop files, not "NoDisplay".
