[ANNOUNCING] gnome-menu-editor 0.1

Here we go. This is the first release of gnome-menu-editor, an
application meant to allow simple menu editing according the menu-spec;
it is coded after a proposal that Seth once published in may or so. It
requires gnome-menus with patches [1] and [2] applied.

What works:
Very basic menu editing (yay), i.e. inclusion/exclusion of single menu
items. It writes changes to the XDG_CONFIG_HOME and re-reads the whole
menu tree on each change.

What doesn't work:
File change notifications. They're obviously broken in gnome-menus
itself, since the panel doesn't update on changes

Displaying menus that don't contain entries. gnome-menus doesn't provide
them. Maybe there should be an extra getter.

Changes of KMenuEdit override changes of gnome-menu-editor. This is
lame, I know. At some stage we'll share a merge file with KDE and this
won't be a problem. I just fear we might break anything so I hestitate
to use a common file for now.

Leaks. I still can't get memprof to run on my ppc and I don't get along
with alleyoop. We're probably leaking.

Have fun and don't forget to report bugs!
Oh, you want a download location [3] and a screenshot [4] of course.
