It isn't, but it's a dependency for alacarte. All the editors that can
be used to edit the Xfce4 menu are for GNOME, resp. GNOME forks and non
of them provides complete editing of the Xfce4 menu. Ok, for menulibre
there's the claim to be "your one-stop shop for menus in Linux, whether
you use Gnome, LXDE, XFCE, or Unity" - .
