Of course you've never used it -- nobody has because it's just a stub
and doesn't do anything useful yet. The point of it is that they're
going to expand it's usefulness later on.

I personally would like to see apps have the ability to add arbitrary
menu items in there, because my app is at a point where it's just
coming out of it's infancy, and I've avoided adding a menubar at all
because the toolbar was good enough for the limited number of features
that I've had so far, but as the app expands and matures, I have
greater need for a menu. I'd prefer to put my menu into the shell's
Application menu rather than using a traditional GtkMenuBar because
those are quite ugly and outmoded, really.
