too bad ... something similiar is already implemented ... not a checkbox as
that makes no sense in the panel framework, but a small button that says

it actually makes adding apps a heck of a lot simpler, since it doesn't
close the menu when you click those buttons ... so you can add more apps
in one swing ...

plus I don't need to maintain two slightly different menus for starting and
adding apps ...

not really possible ... when you add an app to the panel you copy it, so it
looses any link it had with the menu ... maintaining such a list would be
bloat and not really necessary I guess ...
