logoff dialogue improvement

Carey O'Shea
Ubuntu's (Gnome's) logoff dialogue is a two-click logoff process (select
action, click ok), as opposed to the one-click process of Windows XP
(click action). After watching newbies and elderly people use Ubuntu, I
can assure you that it makes a difference.

All that really needs to be done is have some reboot, logoff, shutdown,
etc icons made.

Thoughts?

This is being done for Dapper, see the DapperDesktopGoals spec for more
info.
