There are far too many things I use to fit in a panel.

Maybe he wants to do what I tried 2-3 weeks ago and couldn't figure out - how 
to do it with a text editor, so that the menus come up nested for all users, 
not mousing for only a single user. e.g., openSUSE KDE3 has a main menu item 
"Internet", with a submenu item "Web Browsers", in which I expect to find 
every web browser installed by YaST or Zypper.
