I'm currently working on a menu editor called gmenu. It's stable on my
system anyway. It allows you to create and delete the panel's menu
entries. And to order them if you have a recent compile of the panel.

If you have CVS access, it's under gnome-core/gmenu. Warning: the
CVS version is about to undergo a heavy rewrite. So sometime soon
it's going to get really unstable. (Hint: get it now ;)

There is also a copy and screenshot of v0.2.4 on my web site at:

or to just download it get:
