Feel free to work on this, though it's not necessarily a good first
project... to do it, you'll have to learn more than most GNOME hackers
already know using GtkActions and GtkUIManager.

Use gconf... Every game in the package uses gconf, so just borrow from
those examples.

The menu will be a little bit harder, look at code behind the puzzle menu
items in Klotski, the options menus in Aisleriot, and Gtk+ API docs....
The document about migrating to GtkAction in Gtk+'s API docs is a very
useful introduction.
