  Description     : global appmenu integration

appmenu is a global menu which can take application menus and embed them
into the panel bar. This is really useful for laptops and smaller form
factor devices.

appmenu-gtk is the GTK part of the application. The QT part (appmenu-qt)
has already been commited upstream in the QT 4.8 release.

I got the impression that the globalmenu introduced in GTK 3.4 will make
appmenu-gtk a reality for Debian. But from what I've investigated, it
still does not work. So unless someone can correct further, I do not see
how we could get appmenu-gtk into Debian.

To sum it up, to get this into Debian, the ubuntu patches need be either
carried in the gtk sources or else we will have to wait until it gets
included upstream.

To test it, I pulled in the patches and built myself. Works here on a
KDE environment with GTK apps rendering their menu.
