	I'm pretty sure we've come to the conclusion that editors should create
a toplevel in ~/.config/menus along the lines of:

<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"




	That's the suggested method in the spec too.

	Note, we'll be adding an attribute to <MergeFile> to make it ignore the
path name and just look up the parent .menu file according to
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS. There's a recent thread on xdg-list about that.
