Indeed. I've converted over about 7 of my packages to use
install-fvwm2menu today :-)

Hmm.. I'm not sure if this is the way to go. It makes more sense to me for
a package to come with the icon it uses with install-fvwm2menu instead of
lumping them all together in fvwm. Of course, if fvwm provides the icon
you need, you can just use that one. 

Another question: should only x-based programs be set up to use
install-fvwm2menu, or should useful text-based programs be set up to spawn
an xterm running the program? I'm thinking about programs like pine, slrn,
etc, that are application-type programs.
