I've quickly tried to get the context of all this, but I must say that Havoc 
is right here. Editing menus (e.g. the K-menu/Start menu) has nothing to do 
with what program runs (and how) when you try to open a data file (eg 
{double,single} clicking on a .txt icon). They are two conceptually different 
things reguardless of how they are implemented.

Please please please make sure that they are kept separate.
