Well, as far as I'm concerned, I don't need to rewrite the whole menu
entry, I just need to change the section="" field. E.g:
ardour-gtk: "Apps/Sound" -> "Sound/Recorders/Multitrack"
Thus the idea is that I only customise the section/menu-path with:
and then I have a script in /etc/menu (or whatever location), which
can be common for all CDDs, and that is invoked by update-menus and
write on standard out a menu entry identical to the original one that
comes with the ardour-gtk package, but with the my custom menu path.
This script is (basically) finished. It just prepends CDD name to the
original menu entry, but finding a different. Have a look at
from CVS. (But please do not lock so close because it is quite hackish
shell scripting. ;-) )
