Don't ask me, ask the xdg people...

My belief, though, is that they'll say it's better for the menu system
to only have to parse one file rather than several dozen for each menu
entry.  (Having said that, there may be a way to generate the
translated .desktop files from .po files in source packages.  If there
isn't, it should be codeable fairly easily.  Since I don't know crap
about po files, I am not volunteering to code this tool too.)
