By existing menu hierarchy, do you mean the one I put in my proposal, or the
one in the menu documentation?

The one I put in my proposal is subtly different - all the menu entries are
the same, but I rewoked the descriptions to be more general, so you don't
have to try to intuit what goes in a menu by looking at examples of other
programs that go there (not very helpful if you're not familiar with the
example programs). I also added some text to the top to allow packages to
add menu menus to leaf menus, which is current practice although not
mentioned in the menu documentation.

How is it more specific? If you'll revisit my proposal you'll see I stated
the *exact* text I proposed to add. On the other hand I'm still not sure
exactly what you propose to add.

If it comes to this we've failed.
