Root always has preferences...there's always a default shell(sh or csh), for
Isn't the default always the root preference?

One possible extension to the Gnomeprint could be scripts that add menu
items with specific menuspaces.  For example, the user could add a
"freshmeat" menu to his or her gnomeprint that'd list new apps on freshmeat,
