Not a SUSE menu, per se, but in the menu tab of the Desktop settings dialog
one can edit the Desktop menu (or run xfce4-menueditor directly). Uncheck
the box in the "--- include --- system" and you'll get a much bigger menu
when you right-click on the desktop that includes any apps that follow XDG
guidelines in placing their .desktop files in the proper place(s). Adding
the Xfce menu to the panel will duplicate this.

Just a warning, though. Using this will cause xfdesktop to consume a bit more
memory as icons get cached, though disabling application icons will reduce
the hit, both in the desktop menu and the panel menu. I haven't checked out
the 4.4 betas, so I don't know how successfully this has been addressed.
