3.5.13-sru, .menu file install change (prevents kde4 conflict)??

Tim, Slavek, Francios,

  One conflict with kde4 and 3.5.13-sru is the install of .menu files in
/etc/xdg/menus (I think by tdebase). I have two ideas. Either are OK if they
will work:

(1) cherry-pick the commit that changes the names of the menu files from to for sru. E.g.:


  The problem here is I don't know how much else in the code has to be changed
along with this. OR

(2) Install all files to $TDEDIR/etc/xdg. I don't know if this will
work, but my installs already put the following files in /opt/trinity/etc


  If putting,,, and in /opt/trinity/etc/xdg will work, I think we can just make a
change in tdebase TDESetupPaths.cmake. It looks to me like tdelibs/kded installs
the applications menu in /opt/trinity/etc while tdebase installs the rest of the
menus in /etc.

  If we can do either (1) or (2), that will eliminate an install confict with
kde 4.9. What say the experts? Can we do something like this?
