for now it needs to be empty because we have to get the ordering of
action-adding correct - all actions have to be added before we ever call
get_widget() to retrieve a menu/menubar. otherwise, it causes odd

almost all Gtk::MenuItem* foo_item variables have no use anymore. All
"set sensitive" operations should be carried out on the underlying
Action, not the menu item.

why? because an Action can have several proxies: accelerators, buttons,
menu items. making the action sensitive/insensitive takes care of all of
them at once.
