 This ticket, starts by the assumption that any user could/wish customize
 and rearrange the Deskbar menu according his own preferences.
 Currently in Haiku (not the PM branch) this can be easily done by going in
 the folder /boot/home/config/settings/deskbar: here we can not only make
 new folders, but we can also remove/move present items inside new folders
 (eg organizing them by category.. Media, Graphics, Utility, etc.. etc..)
 Currently, in the Haiku PM, there are three folder for the Deskbar menu:
 "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu"
 which both are read only (so we cannot remove items from here) and
 "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu", which has write permissions.
 But i cannot move here, in new personal folders (eg utility, media,
 graphic), the elements which are present by default inside
 "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu"
 because if i attempt to move elements from
 "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" to
 "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu", i will be warned about the fact
 that i cannot move elements from here. And this forbids users to
 organize/customize the Deskbar menu. So, in my opinion
 "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu"
 should be present under a "non-packaged" directory (so without the
 restricting read only permission), to allow users to totally
 reorganize/customize the Deskbar menu according to own preferences.
