I browsed a bit through my filesystem, and it seems like the menu
consists of a bunch of files in /usr/share/menu. The applets itself
are just programs that change config files. So basically, this affects
all those programs (or rather, about 10 new ones that steal a lot of
code from the old ones) and the files in that directory. There is also
this new PolicyKit feature of Hardy, which actually makes these
changes feasible.

What it could éffect is a very easy to use configuration system, and
more importantly: happy users! ;-)
