Dear InterWeb...

Mock The Week is about to start, so I'll be quick. Can I ellipsize a GtkMenuItem? It's easy to make Tasks have very long menu items, which end up being too big for the screen. I'd like to get the menu items truncated so that the menu will fit on the screen, or something. I guess I'll have to truncate the string manually if there is no magic way of doing it directly in the menu, but that really is a fallback plan.
