I do not think a click on nothing is persuasively intuative as a way to
create an application launcher.

Who wants diddly squats littering the screen, anyway?

For programs that can be found through the Applications function (top
left corner in the default desktop arrangement), a right click on the
desired application and selection of "Add to favorites" seems rather

I suspect your concern may be for an easy way to add new programs
to the Applications function, which is a more obscure matter.  Something
that creates a .desktop file in the right way, perhaps?
