I'm aware of that, what I meant by "inclusion by default" was that it
would be active in the menu without requiring enabling in the menu

If that's not an exaggeration, then that would of course be a serious
issue. On my computer it certainly doesn't take 30 seconds, it's more
like 3-4 seconds. Do you know the reason for the delay on your
computer? If that's a common bug then of course I accept it is a valid
justification of the status quo.

Actually, it's easier to find an application in gnome-control-center
because they are grouped in categories. Looking for the correct tool
to change a configuration setting in the long
Administration/Preferences menus is actually very difficult unless you
already know what it is called - not all of them are completely
intuitive. That's ok for people who have been using Gnome a while, but
it must be hell for those who haven't.
