b) is no problem. The gnome app can notify WMaker with an PropertyNotify event 
about the changed menu.

A big problem is the 'freedom' of gtk+: as I understand, one can put any
possible widget in a menubar/menu (please correct me if I'm wrong). But WMaker 
in it's current implementation supports only Cascade and Command entries. It
will be difficult to map anything 'extravagant' from a gtk+ menu to a WMaker

But I keep thinking, implementing and tinkering, perhaps I will stumble about
a solution...
