They don't see the window list in the bottom? The show desktop button
has been in the GNOME panel for years and years. I am not sure why you
wait for such changes to be done at the last minute.  Where does such
changes get discussed?

If you had done it earlier in the development cycle and announce/discuss
the changes before you do them, it would be helpful to gather feedback
and document the gconf keys and what not in the release notes. These
sort of unannounced changes done tend to frustrate people a lot.
