Bug Description

I personally find the 'Show Desktop' option a bit nasty, because everytime I hit it for mistake, I'm forced to visit each open window in order bring it back to the front.

Therefore, I'd like to have a gsettings option to hide 'Show Desktop'.

Just an FYI, if you accidentally 'show desktop' and lose your windows just alt-tab to 'show desktop' again. You don't have to visit each window to bring them back, it acts like a toggle.

Can we have that backported to Unity 5 for people like me that don't want to upgrade yet from Precise? That'd be great.
