try adding manually this:

	<menu execute="/path/to/obm-xdg" id="xdg-menus" label="Gnome"/>

wherever you want in your menu.xml

I guess it would be something like this:
obm-xdg --import
mv ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml ~/.config/openbox/gnome.xml
mv ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml~ ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml
and then tweaking your config.xml and menu.xml to use it as a submenu

Anyway, using the dynamic pipe menu should be better..
