Gnome2 user-defined menu?

I've mostly migrated over to Gnome2, in unstable, and most things went
relatively smoothly. The one exception, so far, is user-defined
menus. How do I add such a beast? Under Gnome 1.x I had a menu that
sat in one of my panels where I defined commands, via a Launcher, like

        gnome-terminal -x ssh remotecomp

so I could pop up a window connected to, for example, "remotecomp". I
can't for the life of me figure out how to do this under Gnome2!

It's been a long time since I did it under the old Gnome, but I coulda
sworn it was as easy as clicking on the Panel and selecting "Add
Menu". That doesn't appear to be the case with Gnome2.

I've tried navigating through the documentation for vfolder, .desktop,
.directory, etc., but unless it's absolutely necessary to read all
that gunk to add a simple user-defined menu I'd prefer not having to
learn it. 

I also tried using a "Drawer" and that would almost work, but I don't
want it to display an icon for the items, it needs to display a simple
user-defined name, like "remotecomp" instead.

Any suggestions?
