Related project: Nautilus.
Sometimes I need to arrange my desktop but often I have arranged groups of files in a specific order and specific position so they are easy to have access to. This applies especially during short term projects where is it easier to get access to certain files directly via the desktop instead of creating a folder hierarchy etc.
Ubuntu provides the option to arrange only all the desktop icons not a few.
@cfg: I dont think its like the desktop folder, its close but not the same thing, the desktop folder is always there, this kinda thingie is more kinda present when you create the group, say via right click menu. Or thats how I read it.
