Sometimes you get really stupid descriptions in there.  e.g. The tooltip
for Amaya says "edit the web".

Gee!  Really?  Can I delete microsoft.com?

The desktop files used to populate the menus should have the proper
application name in the right place, a terse description in the right
place, and more details in the right place.  And a user menu option
ought to select what's shown.  e.g. select to show Names in menu, select
to show terse info in the same menu item, select whether the longer
detailed pop-ups do pop up, with the default to do the obvious name and
terse description.  e.g. "Amaya, web page editor."

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
