i don't think this has anything to do with kickoff specifically, it just shows 
whatever the menu structure is advertised as.

i really don't even remember any discussion of this on plasma-devel, and i 
really don't want to be the maintainer of the app menu organization (which is 
not just a plasma thing, but something that affects all desktop shells which 
show kde4 apps in their menu)

as such, i really don't care what happens to it (other than i'd like it to be 
good :)
