GNOME 3.6 does not seem to give ANY standard menu anymore, instead
giving a search box only that will then pull up menu options. I don't see any
way to put US menus in that unless it was an extension that added a true
menu like Frippery does. That would be hell to mantain, given the constant
changes in gnome-shell.
