I have prepared a patch for the menu-spec to include all kinds of layout hints 
based on previous discussion.

I'm not sure if I have the terminology right... do tags have "parameters" ? Or 
are those things called different?

The original proposal used "<Order>" elements, I have changed that to 

The original proposal suggested to use a "showInline" bool in the .directory 
file of the menu, I think it is more practical to define whether to inline or 
not as part of the layout definition.

Heinrich suggested NotShowIfEmpty and ShowIfEmpty and I have added those
in the form of a show_empty parameter for the Layout menu.

My docbook code probably sucks layout wise. If anyone has suggestions for 
improvement I would appreciate that.

Awaiting your feedback.
