Eh, correct me if I'm wrong, but surely the way it works is that install-menu 
and the various menu-method provided by window/desktop manager packages to 
convert the set of menu files into the native menu configuration formats of 
those window/desktop managers? install-menu would now be improved to 
read .desktop files directly; there is no need to convert them into .menu 
files first (and really no reason to convert .menu to .desktop either).
