This works, but the easy way is to use Nautilus.

Open Nautilus up and type in the URL "applications:///".  This should
show you the bottom of your menu structure - very like in Doze, in fact.

Now create a new folder, give it an icon in its props, and throw
Launchers in there.

You'll probably have to restart the panel to see it, but the new menu
will now be in the main Gnome menu.  click into it, and then right-click
a launcher (not another menu) in it, follow through the context menu to
"This Menu" and you can now add this submenu directly onto the panel,

I did this to copy all my still-here Gnome-1.4 applications into a menu
on my Gnome-2.0 desktop =O)
