Do we want to update Kmenu spec now? (was Re: [trinity-devel] (4) basic kmenu fixes - (getting rid of 'More Applications'))

Ah, hah!

  For Trinity, it looks like the main file defining categories
is: /opt/trinity/etc/xdg/menus/ Current names are:

                        <Name>Web Development</Name>

  While I'm looking at this - do we want to go ahead a add/cleanup a few things
in the basic in kdelibs? Like adding submenus for kruler, etc.
in Graphics/Tools or Graphics/Utilities to make a place to put the small graphic
utilities like kruler, kcolorchooser, kiconedit, etc.. so they don't clutter the
main 'Graphics' menu?

  Looking at the menu specification and all the xzy apps under Utilities, it
means all the current XUtilities in kmenu->Utilities are misplaced (xfw, xfi,
xfp, xfm, etc.. should all be in XUtilites not Utilities) Do we want to fix this

  I have the first patch done for kruler.desktop. (Attached) Hold off applying
it until we get a decision on creating Graphics/Tools or Graphics/Utilities (I
prefer Graphics/Utilities) before applying. I'll change it again if we want it
in a submenu.
