No Lie, Jeff is on it. I reffered to this vaguely by mentioning the current
Menu Policy (vFolder and such is mentioned.) Thanks a bunch for the link. Hey
while your here, any thoughts on the GNOME front regarding matching up the KDE
menu layout and the GNOME one? Any discussion on the matter in the GNOME lists
and such? (Too bad I don't have the time to track both.)
