Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

On Ubuntu 9.10 UNR the icon to launch Empathy is in the Favourites menu, making it very prominent. New users have no clue that Empathy is an instant messaging application. Most of the icons are named in a way that explains their function, for example, Evolution mail client.

Here is a potential patch to liblauncher trunk (0.3). I wasn't able to actually test it because netbook-launcher currently isn't working with liblauncher0.3 but it's an idea anyway.
