Erm, this is far too important to just ask a lowly hacker such as me to add it
himself if he really wants it. Stock menu and toolbar items are essential to
application consistency and to translation efforts.

Also, if this XML thing is part of Bonobo (not just in the C sugar) then it's
defintely beyond me at the moment. I'm still learning this stuff.

I appreciate that you're busy and that you probably feel pressured by "does it
do this?" questions, but it doesn't take much effort to put it on a TODO list.
