While I can't speak to any "skirmish" (AFAIK the reason for the
missing menu editor in 4.6 is a technical one due to major changes in
the menuing system, not a social one), the developers are working on a
menu editor for the 4.8 xfce4 release. I agree that it's unnecessarily
complex, in fact this lack of a menu editor, and a couple annoying
bugs when 4.6 was released were enough for me to give Gnome a try
again for about a month.
