I vote to include it in hildon-extras, too :)

For one, it's certainly a lot more finger-friendly than
hildon_gtk_menu_new () is (although, admittedly, that function is
meant more for popup menus and the like...).

When writing your own program, using HildonAppMenu with GtkButton and
its derivatives and only including the needed menu entries (as per the
Maemo HIG) is easy. When porting a program that uses a GtkMenuBar with
*lots* of entries, not so much.
