I don't know... if we drop the Restart button in the menu, do we still
need to take any action? Also, where's the proposed SVG icon for Restart

Couldn't SoaS use a variant of olpc-switch-desktop? I think it works

We have a simple journal patch to show the Documents folder on the
volumes toolbar. It covers 80% of the Gnome/Sugar interoperability needs
adding just 20 lines of straightforward code to Sugar. Another
possibility was developing a fuse interface to the datastore, but I
think it brings too much complexity and fragility.
