If we are to believe
<URL: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Development/Howto/MenuMigrationToXDG >,
it is possible to migrate from Debian menu files to XDG desktop files
and still get working and useful menus for the following window
managers: WindowMaker, fvwm2, icewm, blackbox, fluxbox, openbox,
xfce4, openbox3 (and probably more if we want to extend the xdg_menu
script.  The migration can also be done while keeping the menues
useful and working in the migration period.

Personally, I believe this is a good idea, as the current situation
with two partly integrated menu systems is confusing for both
maintainers and users.

Happy hacking,
