yup... that would be the most trivial way to achieve what I was
trying to achieve.

Maybe E-config dialog reads those special menu's from a cache specifically meant for them, and that cache is maintained by the FDO implementation that you have going already?
So when you're searching for FDO menus, you maintain a special one
for them? I know you're busy, but for cheap motivation, if you
implemented that, I'll be an early adopter :p

And _everyone_ and his brother knows that there's no better way to
say 'We Love You David', than by being an early adopter :P

A better motivator is to figure out where these apps are going to be
displayed.  No point writing code until the design decisions are made.
right :)

/me puts on serious hat.

I would imagine that it would be better for *external config* apps so to speak, to be displayed unders an "Others" or an "Utilities" category in the Config Panel.

This ofcourse is because *i think* things would get messy, if we displayed them directly under MainMenu->Configuration->InsertAppHere, I quickly imagine everyone and his brother putting applications there, and having to scroll-down a long list of apps in future.
