I hate it. :-)

Luckily , this is the kind of thing that should be easy to configure on
a per-windowmanager and also per-user (or group or whatever) basis, and
already is easily done with the existing menu system. You can add a
general_name to menu entries, and make the menu-methods file make the
item be "$general_name ($entry)" when there is a general_name, and not
otherwise. Or perhaps better, use the existing hint field for this, so
if the hint makes a submenu, you get "$hint ($entry)", and otherwise you
get a $hint submenu with $entry in it. (Our hint names are worded wrong
to really do this though).
