	Yes, the menu code in the panel sucks and at some point if we're making
some serious changes it would be a good idea to re-write it, but
re-writing for the sake of it isn't something I'd advocate.

	One thing I tend to do is if I'm re-writting bits of e.g. menu.c, I
split it out into a file of its own - e.g. if you want to re-work the
menu's context menu you could split it out into
panel-menu-context-menu.c or something silly like that ...
