It _is_ fairly easy to do manually.  As for whether XFCE gets a menu 
editor, I don't really care.  I've been manually editing my menus ever 
since I switched to XFCE, instead of getting a patched-for-xfce alacarte 
I _am_ glad any official xfce menu editors probably won't be forks of or 
patches to alacarte.  Alacarte liked to copy menu entries to several 
categories for no apparent reason before I stopped using it.
