OK, a bit of status on the menus. The vfolder-desktop-method is in gnome-vfs
head now and this is what does the menu structure. Currently the vfolder
file for programs: will make folders that are similar to current structure,
mostly because I was too lazy to do anything else. It should be fairly easy
to make it work in the new structure, however it may require actually adding
keywords to existing .desktops to make it work nice (as a query on keywords
rather then just hardcoding the filenames, which can however always be done).
Of course it's sort of work in progress, so it works fairly decently for
reading, but it kind of sucks if you try writing (it will allow full user
customizability by just dragging around files in nautilus, which means we can
pretty much dump gmenu)
