I don't see why we should duplicate the menu under "Internet" for apps
which are specifically web clients, but would otherwise be normal apps.
Most apps should peruse network connectivity for various things anyway.
I'd expect "Google Calendar" to show up in the same place as "Random
Local Calendar App" for example.
