Currently the 'menu'-functionality is half way there, I think.
While one defines a 'menu' in the metadata.txt, the actual placing has
to be done by the coder self in python.

Not sure what the reason was (alexander?)... (was it that the
pluginmanager had to know it, or that the plugins were loaded before the
gui or....).

But I think it would be nice to have this fixed first. Then a user can
even 'move' a plugin by changing the metadata.txt.
