Hi Bill,

We've been discussing this menu transition for xbase-clients recently,
and there are several programs that we don't know where to place in the
new hierarchy. xclock/oclock are most problematic ones, we don't know
what to do with this kind of WM-generic widgets. Several others are
still not really satisfying, like xclipboard. Could you have a look at
bug #373723 where we are currently discussing this?
