HowTo guide for 3rd-parties adding a menu

I'm deploying Linux (replacing Solaris) at my firm.  I would like to add 
a single menu with all of our in-house applications to the system's 
menus, regardless of the wm the user chooses.

I have something that works to a certain extent, but it was not that 
simple.  It seems that most of the documentation out there is related to 
specific window managers, invariably directing users to do 
"ShowOnlyIn=MyWM" and the like.

Has anyone seen a howto for this?
