PanelMenu is a GtkMenu sub-class used by stock gnome-panel.
Platform vendor Foo implements FooGtkMenu and - via the "foogtk" gtk
module which is loaded by all applications - it appoints FooGtkMenu for
Foo quickly notices that gnome-panel is not using the customised
GtkMenu implementation. Vendor Foo must then implement a "foopanel" gtk
module which appoints FooPanelMenu for PanelMenu and ensure that this
module is only loaded by gnome-panel.
My point is that Foo would prefer if PanelMenu could automatically
sub-class FooGtkMenu rather than GtkMenu.
