removing icons from desktop

I don't like icons on the desktop.

Up to Psyche it was possible to choose to not use nautilus to draw
the desktop. This also got rid of the icons.

Now it seems this option is being deprecated and nautilus is used
to draw the desktop and the background. In any case nothing is
available in the configuration menus.

This makes it a bit difficult to use the option '--no-desktop'.
Add this option to ./gnome2/session and the background also disappears.
You start up with a panel on a black screen.
(of course you could draw a background by other means).

Does anybody know of a simple way to get rid of the pesky icons.

If no simple way exist I think Gnome should also include a configuration
option to remove the icons from the desktop in the near future.
