NAK. By doing this, you are denying a golden opportunity to GNOME. The
gProcessDisplayTaskListGTKWidget object MUST have a reason to hide from the
user all those pesky processes with names in brackets. If your patch is
accepted, the oportunity to once again prove to all that GNOME knows
Better[tm] will be lost, as there won't be a reason to commit the patch to
gProcessDisplayTaskListGTKWidget anymore.
