Not necessarily. Libeel already gets the list from gnome-menus, and AIUI
it would only be a question of passing the app-install-data path to
search for other applications.

Installing the application would then be done by running directly

That sounds fine at first, but keeping libeel's open with entry would
make the menu confusing, and removing it would mean losing its
functionality. Furthermore, other applications using libeel wouldn't
benefit from this improvement.

Yeah, an additional button in the dialog would definitely be the
simplest implementation. I don't like the idea of another step until the
installation, but it's also not something you do every day.
