It seems to me that it should probably take a GtkUIManager path.

It can then serialise the menu description and association GtkActions
over the bus to be recreated on the other side.

Applications creating their menus directly and not using GtkUIManager
should probably be ported anyway.

I would remove any API that takes a GtkMenu directly, since this is a
GtkWidget and really cannot be reliably proxied over D-Bus (what would
happen if I tried to poke in some of the widget properties of that
