Would someone like to go ahead and open a bug against
gnome-control-center for #4, and for #1 against gnome-session to
request that it show in System Settings? I already opened
http://pad.lv/941697 for #3.

Since as already been stated, adding a restart option to the system
menu would require an "are you sure"-style popup which is already
provided by the existing shut down dialog, I don't think that's
necessarily a useful improvement or has consensus.
