I'm working on a desktop (like XFCE) as a private project, and I would like to implement the Unity Global Menu in my desktop using python. I've looked at the Dbusmenu API and even Unity's dbus "Registrar" itself and I'm still lost. How do I go about implementing my own appmenu-indicator? Do I need to implement my own "AppMenuRegistrar" or can I reuse Ubuntu's libraries and services?
