Description

In 2.4~rc1 I see an obscure AP-SPI Browser in Applications → Programming. When trying to open it, out of curiosity, I get a message saying that this thing needs something else to work (Assistive Technology Support). I don't understand what this is about, so I choose Enable to make the machine happy, hoping it's not dangerous. Then I faced with a tree-like browser for all the GUI items on my desktop. I can't really do anything with that so I close it.

I think we should hide AP-SPI Browser from the user, both in the Applications menu and the activities overview.

Assigning to intrigeri who added this launcher in 1371722.

Hide dogtail's AT-SPI Browser in the Applications menu.

Apparently some users are curious enough to browse the Programming section,
start "AT-SPI Browser" from there without knowing what it is about (let's call
this "exploratory testing" :) and as a result they are confused when they see…
an AT-SPI Browser appear.

Regardless of what we may think wrt. how we should generally handle such
scenarios, let's think in an ad-hoc way here: this development helper is not
meant to be useful to end-users, so let's hide it to avoid such confusion;
developers who need AT-SPI Browser will know how to start it.

anonym, the fix seems to trivial that I didn't bother building+testing an ISO. But given you're the one doing the dogtail work, and I was merely giving you a hand when I did the commit that introduced dogtail in the ISO, I hope you don't mind that I didn't do all the work :)

Clearly I could have done it, but thanks for taking the time! Merged!
