One possible way to do it is to modify GnomeApp, and make its menubar default
to detached and put it way up at the top of the screen (of course this
behavior would depend on the user's preferences).  You'd also want to hide
the menubar when the window loses focus, but that would mess up people with
pointer driven focus (but probably if they are using pointer driven focus
they aren't going to have the mac-style menubar).
