though honestly, i think the "debian menu" is inferior to the "upstream
menu" layout found in kde/gnome from a user standpoint.  perhaps i'm not
the only one who finds the debian menu a little clunky, crufty and out
of date?  that's not to say i don't appreciate what it does.

ideally, there ought to be some kind of way to either
generate .menu/xpm-format files from .desktop files or vice versa (with
appropriate automagical section mapping).
