A few Lubuntu Menu things... TOP FIVE vote

List is up to date.
@Eric HPLIP has 2 icons... the Menu Icon (which does indeed look awful) 
and the indicator icon which looks out of place... since I use this app 
for printing I will make better icons for this, and add them into my box 
icon set.

@All This issue is in the desktop file, as we well know.
Rafael has been hacking the Lubuntu specific apps to use a modified 
desktop file.  Though I am not sure if this change gets overwritten *if 
the user apt-get purge || apt-get autoremove  and then apt-get install 
the same app.
So the only way I can see this actually being fixed is, if someone 
actually fixes the debian packaging.
A short script should fix all this in the entire 40,000+ packages, but 
none of us has sudo for the repos (fortunately :)
This will have to get attention somehow, and I am not sure how.
Either Ubuntu fixes this, or Debian fixes it.

If anyone on this list has a specific app they want fixed, post it.
If we get a top 5 list going, I think I can fix at least 1 of the five 
in time for 14.04.
I may be able to automate something in the future, so I can simply 
bzr-branch a bunch of stuff, run a few scripts and propose for merger.
But fixing at least one of these issues will be worthwhile.
