Switch off desktop icons in gnome

I've never liked having things on my desktop, so I want to tell nautilus not to put anything there. In true gnome fashion there doesn't seem to be any way to set such an option from the various dialogs that I thought to look in. There is an option though. Using gconf-editor you can set app/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop to false and the icons go away.
