Odd - seems to work O.K here :-( You need to write the location:<Menu
item> all in small letters - did you do that ?

Ya, that was a really bad idea but I needed to hack something up quickly
(just as proof of concept) so I took the easy way out. I really don't
know how to handle comparison of translated strings :-( I guess we can
leave this to the user and hope he gets the location right ? Tools we'll
bundle won't be a problem since we can add them to the translations list
I guess. BTW, I can't seem to find this gtk_menu_insert_at_path()
function - is this GTK2 specific by any chance ?

I'll work on the tools stuff some more this week and hope to have
something usable working by Friday - at least, it should be useful
enough for stuff like this (custom print commands, etc.)
