If you are using trunk, the Gtk.UIManager is now exposed by the
designer.  You can either use it to get a specific menu object by path:

UIManager.GetWidget ("/menubar/filemenu");

or you can use the UIManager API to add new actions and insert new menu
items directly.

If you are using 1.0, the UIManager is not exposed, so you will have to
manually navigate through the menu hierarchy using Gtk.Menu and MenuItem
from the menubar.
