Yes.  That's what I said.  But I think he wants to right click on the 
menu item itself, as used to be possible in kde3's kicker kmenu, and open 
kmenuedit directly to the item, instead of having to click on the base 
icon in the panel, open kmenuedit, and (again) browse to the item from 
the root of the applications menu in kmenuedit.  That's the part that's 
not working yet, in any of the three, classic, kickoff, or lancelot (I've 
no idea on raptor, it's still under development AFAIK).
