The procedure browser is just that, a procedure browser. There is no
point in adding a menu path there since a procedure doesn't
necessarily have a menu path associated with it. This is functionality

Sorry, but GIMP also doesn't know what language the procedure is
written in. Such a framework would first have to be added and I don't
see it as particularily useful.
