Heh, I'd completely forgotten about the print >> file, foo idiom,
usually I see file.write(foo), but either is fine. You might consider:
file = codecs.open(filename, "a", "utf-8")
so you don't have to convert your unicode string-by-string.

You're bumping into the difference between persisted items (which are
created once, then left alone) and code that's re-interpreted on every
run. The code in installParcel is only run when you install the plugin.
Wiping your repository and restarting ought to bring in the new menu
name, but I think it would also work to just bump the version number in
your setup.py and re-run RunPython setup.py develop.
