What about adding the magical incantation to a menu item?

You'd type it once, and then it'd be clicky-clicky after that.
Dunno if it'd work, but I use this under XFCE to set up remote
connections via ssh, ('Eterm -foo -bar -e ssh somehost'), rdesktop
('rdesktop somehost') and running Yet Another OS's terminal app
via Wine, which is way too long a string to remember and type

Facts, apart from their relationships, are like labels on empty bottles.
