Does this extra function also include the icewm proposal?

Yup. Would be great if the main menu-bar of a GNOME app is automatically
converted to a WindowMaker Menu. So you could hide the actual menu and use the 
wmaker menu. I love this idea. Lets write it. Where should I start...

a) is it already possible to hide the main menu of a gnome app
b) does the menu of a gnome app ever change (but this should no problem)

Should we cooperate, should I do it on my own (could not be this hart, just a
few hooks in the GNOME menu functions that call the wmaker stuff and set the
right atoms)...

Currently the DnD stuff of XEmacs seems to run fine (no negative reports ;-)
and so it seems I have some time to do it...
