We could use the metrics collection system to learn that over a few
weeks. I guess we'd want to know which panels were most often opened
from the home screen of System Settings itself, rather than from any
other access point. (For example, it would be silly to put "Time &
Date..." into the device menu, even if it happened to be one of the
most common, since there's already a menu item for it inside the clock
menu next door.)

If the "System Settings..." item remained too, that would remain a
poor tradeoff: saving only one click (of an item on the System
Settings home screen), at the expense of an extra item in the menu
that people need to grok when deciding which of the seven ways to end
their Ubuntu session.
