This is something I discussed with Bill Allombert at the Solutions
Linux expo back in February which is the last time we met.

Bill is very opened to this, but it probably needs work *inside* menu
to support localized entries such as "title-xx" and "longtitle-xx" and
*outside* menu so that .desktop files are translatable through the use
of PO files (something like a "po-menu" utility working similarly to
po-debconf and putting the strings in debian/po).

You actually had a very good idea to raise this up, Paul..:)
