    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.
