Egads, man, no...  I was hoping more for a setting within Xfce so that
menus have the same sort order behavior as Thunar, for consistency,
and to make it easier (sloppier?) for desktop files.

Maybe easier to sent a style standard for the "name=" field to be
capitalized. Perusing Xfce and KDE distributed desktop files, it
appears that all the "name=" are capitalized (for this reason?).
