right.  this won't actually do that, and there's no GUI way of doing this
at present.  i suppose it would only require a one- or two-line change
to make it work for the case of manually putting a file in
~/.local/share/applications/.  i'm not sure that that's what's supposed to
happen, anyway.

i think we should put this discussion on hold until we branch for 4.3.  i'm
probably going to rip out the menu system as it is now and replace it with
something similar to benny's menu.  until i look into it more, i can't
say as to the feasibility of doing pretty much anything for 4.3.
