The point wasn't that the locations aren't standard, but that the
locations are stupid.  The 'File' menu rather indicates it works ont he
current file, and operations load 'quit' and such really don't belong
there.  'about' really isn't 'help', either, and 'preferences' don't fit
in any of the common menues.
