Long term we would rather like to get rid of this menu entirely. IMO it
would be much better if we included links to the user manual in the GIMP
tips. We have some plans for GIMP 2.8 to improve the tips system and to
put it into a more prominent location (the empty image window).

It's a script because that was the simplest solution. Making it an XML
file would require writing a plug-in that parses this file and installs
the menu items.

Plug-in menu entries are sorted alphabetically and plug-ins can't do
anything about that ordering. Why does this look messed up for
translated versions?
