And before many people jump up and say: ooh, I have a nice PNG icon
there... Do not use them as-is. If I remember Bill's comment correctly,
the menu system is not supposed to work for anything but XPM now, see
menu policy [1]. A major overhaul was planned after Sarge, since all
menu package users need to be reviewed, and maybe additional config
hooks in menu generators will be required.
