I have questions about XDG_MENU_PREFIX as it appears
in the spec.

This appears to be a dash terminated prefix applied to
the applications.menu.

My Fedora system has a lot more menus than just the
applications.menu.  It has:


As you can see, even the "applications-gnome" menu violates
the XDG spec.

Where is my:

kde4-preferences.menu file?

I just don't get the logic of having a standard for
just the "applications" category.

I'm in the midst of adding a new xdg menus tool to fvwm2 and
I definitely want to access menus than just applications.
