No, if Debian implements the vFolder spec, then the Debian desktop entries
will be merged in with the GNOME and KDE menus. Replacing those structures
(when their apps install correct .desktop files already) will just frustrate
users of those environments. The implementation and structure is already
solved there, so you don't need to worry about it.

The interesting bit is generating menu files for WMs that *don't* already
implement the vFolder spec.
