I do fully agree with you. I don't feel confortable with that hack nor
with the way I've included the icons for the menu branches. I've opted
for the 'known to work correctly today' solution, but more ellegant and
robust solutions should be found.

Anyway, your doubts link with the message I sent last week to the
debian-custom mailing list. Obviously this is something to be done on
cdd. My doubts are that maybe the option of choosing between a
recommendation or a dependency should be implemented. For this case, it
should be recommends, but maybe we should leave open both options for
future implementations.

On the other hand, as this email goes also to debian-custom, maybe we
could also work on taking this freedesktop menu changes to cdd, together
with the debian menu changes you've already done. Actually, I don't know
if freedesktop menus changes make sense in other cdd's, but if they do,
looking for common points would save work for we all.
