GNOME 3.x) know to press the Alt key?

I agree that sweettooth will change nature of plugins, and when
sweettooth is available we will have to revisit this one
I'm proposing this primarily as an urgent RFC to address a specific pain
point we're going to have with this release
I would like to think we will be able to find a better longer term
solution going forward - such as re-exposing many of the power
management/shutdown features to our users so they can easily decide what
options they want when it comes to shutdown, etc.
In the meantime though, I think without alt-status-menu we're going to
have a lot of people viewing on GNOME 3.x negatively, and I'd rather
avoid that given almost everything else about G3.x is awesome.
