I don't think you should change the window manager's menu-method.
They're supposed to be orthogonal to what each package supplies, so that
you can install a new window manager and get a similar menu structure.
Chapter 5 of the manual in /usr/share/doc/menu/html/ suggests that it's
possible to add your own menu entry in ~/.menu/, using the same name as
a system entry to override it. Does that help?
