Removing ksmserver shutdown dialog

I think that we should just do away with the shutdown dialog. The same
task could be easily achieved via the Kicker menu. A Leave submenu
would be present and would expand to have all the options. Users would
then be prompted with a dialog box "are you sure you want to X?"

This would:

1. Allow for a streamlined and efficient interface
2. create a more consistent interface, custom dialogs are not good
because they require more code, and are more complicated for a user to
learn. The KSM functionality would not be compromised anyway, and you
could still issue the same commands to it.
3. reduce clutter in the Kicker menu by moving Lock Session, Switch
User, and Save Session to the new Leave submenu.

What do you think?
