Lightweight Equinox Desktop Environment needs polish

EDE was recommended on a distro forum, where its lightweight and cohesive tools would be useful on older computers with low resources. After installing it, I found that it started up a tiny bit faster than IceWM, came with its own configuration tools, and looked very good in 800x640@256, my mummy-like laptop's highest screen resolution. Although it has its own batch of 'supah speshul' .desktop files, they're easy to work with and emulate. Would be better to have it work with freedesktop standards. Also, keyboard shortcut for the main desktop menu would be /great/.

Just little things, but they count.
