Hi all,

I just updated our specification for action extensions in file manager [1]
to the version 0.13 of its draft.

Among some typo fixes, other modifications are:
- Restates in relevant chapters that actions and menus may have their own set of conditions.
- Add a "Building the whole hierarchy" new chapter.
- add %m and %M parameters.
- Better specify which parameters can be used to determine between « singular » and « plural » forms, and define the default behavior when only « irrelevant » parameters are found.
- States which value must be used in parameter expansions in the case of a singular form.
- The condition defined by the TryExec key evaluates to false if the specified file is not found or is not executable, instead of the entry being ignored.

Your comments are always more than welcome.
