You "can't"... Ximian have constructed an entirely different menu system to
do it. In GNOME 2.0, we have menu vfolders, which will make distribution
integration and custom menus much easier.

[ That said, you will probably not be able to create new *top-level* menus.
The applications menu is designed specifically to avoid the horrendous
bullshit you get stuck with in the Windows start menu. I'll have to check up
on the specifics of this, however. George's vfolder system might actually
allow it. ]
