'kay, menu icons clearly aren't the best idea.

I really like the idea of providing information about menu items but not
the proposed implementation.  The way many other Gnome and GTK give the
information applications do is to show a description of a menu item in the
status bar.  Perhaps the existing short description/summary/blurb in most
plugins could potentially be repurposed for this, what do you think?
