Today I landed the GMenuModel work on glib master.  A release will be
following shortly.

Just one quick question - why is this in GLib? Is that to allow
command-line apps to have a menu?

I tried to ask this here a day or two ago but had problems, so I asked Ryan on IRC. The answer is that it's in GIO rather than GLib and there is precedence; GIcon for example.

My (probably misguided) opinion is that if this type of stuff can't go into GTK+ for some reason, there should be a `glib-ui` or `glib-gnome` library or something like this. I have doubts how many apps linking to GIO without GTK+ are going to need such a model, either because they don't have a UI at all or are using some other toolkit which likely provides a mechanism of its own for this.
