Weather Indicator can't be disabled

Weather Indicator
indicator-weather (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-weather

The weather indicator can't be disabled for an user as it doesn't appear in the list in "Startup Applications".

Weather indicator is mostly useful in a shared computer where not all the users use "unity": in gnome the indicator built-in the clock makes it redundant. More generally people may not want it.

The solution is to drop the "NoDisplay=false" in /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-weather.desktop or switch the value to true. Patch attached.
