I do not entirely agree with you. When opening the session indicator
menu, one can choose between two menu items: Shut down... or Restart...
They both take you to the window with two choices, Shut Down or Restart.
The difference is that, in the session menu, one now can choose Restart
directly. To me it is not very logical to first choose Shut Down and
then Restart, so I do think this is an improvement.
Having said that, it is not really necessary to mention such a trivial
change in our Saucy version.
