Thats a good point. Lets forget detachable then. Having a
menus_have_tearoffs property on GtkMenuMerge and a setting to set it
from still makes sense, I'd say. It's implementation is slightly
complicated by the fact that we probably don't want to make popups
tearoffable, but there is no separate node type for popups vs regular

I think only important is important. But speaking about random controls,
bonoboui supports this via <control> and
bonobo_ui_component_widget_set(). Do we need something similar ?
One more question: I've just fixed the popup support in GtkMenuMerge and
I wonder whether I should emit "add_widget" for popup menus ? Currently,
you have to call gtk_menu_merge_get_widget (merge, "/popups/my-popup")
to get at the constructed menu.
I'm going to commit this stuff now.
