Re: new menu spec in 2.6

I think the point here is more that of sharing code than of sharing
actual bookmarks.  I can see how having the bookmarks be on the panel
would appeal to someone (not me).  More importantly, I could see someone
wanting to use the same gui to edit their menus and their bookmarks.

There are some differences though.  .desktop files have a bunch of
information that epiphany should ignore, for example.  I don't know
whether this is a good idea.
