Allow plugins to group actions (for docky's menu)

Registered by Chris S. on 2009-01-16

It would be nice if a plugin could specify that its actions should be grouped together. For example, say there were "Play", "Pause", "Next" and "Previous" actions associated with Rhythmbox. Currently there is no way for the rhythmbox plugin to specify that its actions should be grouped.

What ends up happening is that all of the playback-related actions show up in random order in Docky's right click menu. Furthermore, it would be nice if the plugin author could actually specify an order that the actions should show up in. For example, say I wanted the specific order to be Play, Pause, Next, Previous.

The current behavior is shown here:

Our type-specific action relevance in 0.8.1 will take care of this. I will investigate item-specific action relevance too.
