Description: Using a desktop environment such as gnome one is by default greeted with three avahi desktop-files that do not appear on other distributions (bssh.desktop, avahi-discover.desktop, bvnc.desktop).
These desktop apps should in my opinion not be present by default since they presumably are used very seldomly (why else are they not present by default on other distributions?).

Additional info:
* package version: 0.8+15-ge8a3dd0-3
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Debian splits the programs as well as the desktop files to the "avahi-ui-utils" package.

Arch does not split out minuscule programs for no reason.
