Not really, no.

Eventually we should use the standard About dialog which is
much better these days.

The User Manual item is only added to the menu if the Manual
Plugin is loaded. Such adding can only be done to the bottom
of the menu.

The item points to a local copy of the User Manual and only
reverts to accessing the online manual if the local page is
not available.

I would change the menu to this:

 GNUmed wiki                                    (calls browser)
 Online user manual                             (calls browser)
 Debugging ...
 About GNUmed
 GNUmed contributors
 Local user manual                              (if loaded, raises plugin)

(the last item is only added when the Manual plugin is loaded)

That sounds reasonable.
