I've seen that page that you linked to, and I thought I had it figured
out.  I tried to make a symbolic link from /var/lib/gnome/debian/ 
(that's where the normal Debian menu resides) to /usr/share/gnome/
(where it appears that Ubuntu places some items on the menu) but the
symbolic links didn't appear on the menu, even after a gnome-panal
restart.  I would be happy with that working if someone could help me
figure it out.

It takes one tree to make 10,000 matches,
but one match to burn 10,000 trees.
