	The root menu should be decided on an app-by-app basis.  For
example, ee and gimp and EWAN for Windows all use a root menu which is the
application menu.  This turns out to be a bad idea.  Common functions
should be listed in the root menu -- with some common submenus.  But this
won't work for all applications.  (I can't think of any at the moment.)
However, certain WIDGETS should have root menus.  For example, the text
entry dialog box should have copy,cut,paste,spell check, etc.  

	There should not be a main menu in addition to file, although the
File menu doesn't need to be called File if there is a more appropriate

 If you love something, write it in C; if it compiles, it is yours; 
                     if it doesn't, it never was.
