Is there anyway to remove the 'Press This' tool from WordPress for all users?

Define remove. Just remove the visible link or break its functionality? – toscho Apr 2 '12 at 19:56

Adding the following action essentially disables the press-this functionality, at least best I can tell:

add_action('load-press-this.php', function(){ wp_die('"Press This" functionality has been disabled.'); });

The option will still be there on the admin dashboard page, but attempting to use it will fail.
