Most users don't do it, but you have:

    Menu files: (Earlier listed directories override those listed later.)
                  Menu  files  added  by the user. (Isn't read if root runs
                  Menu files added by the system administrator.
                  Menu files provided by other Debian packages.
                  Menu files provided by the menu package. (These are  for
                  packages  that don't provide menu entries yet. If you see
                  (or maintain) a package that  supplies  a  menu file  in
                  /usr/lib/menu/, please email me and I'll remove that menu
                  file from /usr/share/menu/default/).
