Seems to me that this approach might be quicker in users' hands - it 
might be ready for me seven seconds sooner.

For users' private menus while logged in, there's FAM (File Alteration 
Monitor) or its successor to see when you need to reread the file.

The menu created by icewm-xdg-menu looks like it's easily extended to 
allow an include to insert/merge a menu from users' home directory. For 
sysadmins' sanity, I'd suggest that each include would create a submenu, 
not replace or change any existing menu. Any includes would need to be 
preserved over a rebuild, but that doesn't look difficult.
