Hi, sure will be great for developers “get to remove this kind of patch now” (the support for the global menu). But, this will not be great for users. Canonical developers implemented this kind of patch for a reason and the same reason remains valid and possible. Right now with the plus that Unity users love it and is a part of his own work-flow. Is really possible keep it working on gnome shell with same patches. So, you sure want to say, is really a shame more than great thing… True?
