Bug Description

Unity 4.12's Launcher shows only HDDs/DVDs/CDs/USB... but not FTP (and probably not SSH and others).

Desired solution:
- It should be possible add any virtual drive to the Launcher by searching for it in the 'Folder' category of the Dash File Lens, and drag and dropping it on to the Launcher.
- See bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/713423 for a description of a number of the behavioural issues around this functionality.
- It should be possible to remove the virtual drives from the Launcher by un-checking the "keep in Launcher" option or drag and dropping their launcher icon into the trash.
- Virtual internet drives (FTP, SSH) should be treated as removable drives (see bug #713423) because internet connections can be transient, and connecting/disconnecting from the internet is effectively plugging in and unplugging the drive.

The question from design would be should the launcher show those mounts or not, for bluetooth mounts there is bug 620062

Just to be clear about the importance of the bug: this is a 12.04 target, not an SRU by any means.
