Service Menu Customization

I would like to 'customize' the service menu.
I know how to 'add' options [such as :::

cat xmm_options.desktop

# KDE Config File
[KDE Desktop Entry]
Actions=Enque (xmms);Play (xmms)
[Desktop Action Play (xmms)]
Name=Play (xmms)
Exec=xmms %F
[Desktop Action Enque (xmms)]
Name=Enque (xmms)
Exec=xmms -e %F

But where/how do I remove options? Such as 'Add to Bookmarks' as I don't use this feature, and it's a waste of real estate on the right click.
I've grep'd in /opt/kde3 to no avail trying to find the 'add to bookmarks' :(

How do I add a multi-tier option, say 'Open with editor --> 1) kate 2) Open Office 3) VIM'

many thanks

1. "Add to Bookmarks" is a hardcoded option you cannot remove it.
2. Other servicemenus reside in share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus directory under $HOME/.kde or /usr or /opt/kde3. You can add or remove in that.
3. "Open with.." is a special menu. Its behavior is controlled by mime types installed. To configure that u have set the options in "Settings->Configure Konqueror->File Associations" for the specific mime type.
4. To form multitier menus you have to use the option "X-KDE-Submenu". For detailed info see this excellent tutorial by Aaron Seigo
