It would be even nicer if Debian's KDE allowed the sysadmin and users
to choose whether they wanted the KDE, Debian, or both styles of menu.

It already does, the applications.menu file itself is under
/etc/xdg/menu you just have to edit it to the style you want. The users
menu can be stored under ~/.config/menu similar to how update-menus
works already.

I'm looking for simple config items, along the lines of...

Choose a menu style for the KDE desktop:
[ ] system default	whatever the Debian-KDE developers have setup
[ ] KDE only		ignores the Debian generated menu
[ ] Debian only		ignores the default KDE menu
[ ] custom		the sysadmin or user is on their own

Editing the xml based applications.menu will not be so straight forward, especially when it comes time to merge sysadmin tweaks in with changes to the system default.
