No... The point behind the vFolder spec is that both GNOME and KDE can show
all of the same menu items in their preferred / default structures (which
are almost exactly the same now anyway).

So with GNOME and KDE you need to do *zero work*. Just install the .desktop
files in the right place, with sensible metadata, and you're done.

For other menus (for WMs, etc), their internal structures will need to be
rebuilt by the new menu system based on .desktop/vFolder. Almost exactly the
same situation as it is now.

Sounds like burning cats. :-)
