CORBA would work, in GNOME 2 all apps use it anyway, but I think you'd
find it pretty hard to do that way. You could probably do it cleanly
with CORBA if we had the gnome-ui-handler stuff from Bonobo in
gnome-libs and all apps were ported to use it, but...

In the short term you probably want to just modify GnomeDockItem to
have the Mac-menu mode in addition to its existing modes.
