	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[2]:

  1) ~/.config/menus/ - this will completely override

  2) ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/*.menu these will get merged
     in with <DefaultMergeDirs/>


[2] - Assuming the $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and $XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment
variables are unset.
