Ah, I missed the fact that $XDG_CONFIG_HOME was implied by the
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS reference when Chris asked me about this on irc. That's
makes sense now.
So, user modifications can be in:
1) ~/.config/menus/applications.menu - this will completely override
2) ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/*.menu these will get merged
in with <DefaultMergeDirs/>
 - Assuming the $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and $XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment
variables are unset.
