By program do you mean package, or .desktop file? There's a big difference,
in that we expect all desktop users to know roughly what the things are
named by .desktop, but if we have a UI with packages it's going to contain
incomprehensible stuff (what is gvfs? what is pulseaudio? What is...).
All of this should basically all be grouped under "Operating System" with a
"Details |>" expander to see the packages for power users.
We could probably implement generic application restart using
by sending a close event to the app's windows. It wouldn't be awful to
backport this to GNOME 2.
But there's just no way you can have some generic system for the
infrastructure, and we need the logout/reboot system for that.
