The current Xubuntu menu hides too many entries

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xubuntu-default-settings


The current menu hides many entries:
* the exo wrappers
* all entries that are also present in the settings manager dialog

Xfce4-panel uses the same menu to find usable launchers (this is nice for consistency and I won't change that), so in our current panel layout, the exo wrappers' launchers cannot be found and are missing from the panel... Even worse, one cannot create a launcher for xfce4-display-settings for example, as it is hidden as well...

So, we have to revert the menu to display everything, and a new layout allowing to show entries in a nice way is needed (otherwise I'll just take the upstream menu file and use it by default).

For the moment I added a new submenu for the exo wrappers, this should fix the panel. We should find something better though.
