Yeah, you're right. I guess I left it out to only parse the most
essential values and leave the rest to the applications which make use
of libxfce4menu. But considering how fast parsing a complete menu seems
to be right now, I don't think this is necessary. I've added
xfce_menu_item_get_comment() in revision 26525.
