Tested the module out here. Seems to build / run just fine!

My comments would be thus:

Rename kmenu-dir/0mymenu -> kmenu-dir/sopwith

In kmenu-dir/sopwith, fix a few things:

Add an icon to ExeIcon: sopwith.png (Then put some sopwith.png into 

Change ExeNoDesktop: 1 -> 0

In pbi.conf, set PROGICON="" -> PROGICON="sopwith.png" to use the new 
sopwith.png you added.

That's it! One those things are done, this would pretty much be a 
textbook module :)

If you want to make those changes a re-submit, we'll get it committed to 
our SVN repo, and it'll build automatically for all PC-BSD versions.

Great job Jesse!
