Note that we replaced vfolders with a new menu spec (see
www.freedesktop.org) which is similar in spirit but different. I
started changing desktop-file-utils to the new format but haven't
had time to finish it yet. I hope to sometime in the next few months.
If someone is working on d-f-u WindowMaker support, they haven' told
me about it. Waldo Bastian is working on KDE support for the new menu
spec though. As I've said before I think it'd be very sensible to also
use this spec as the Debian menu system, but people weren't biting.
Once GNOME and KDE have interoperating implementations, I hope to see
the Free Standards Group adopt the spec as part of the "desktop
module" of LSB.
