List start menu items

I'm currently working on a project that requires me to list the contents of the "All Programs" folder (and preferably the rest of the start menu, but that's not necessary). I was wondering if there was a nice API to do this (I know there isn't one to edit it, but that's not important to me). I've read on the internet about being able to look at the MenuOrder registry key... but digging about that is yielding little fruit and I'm reluctant to do any more while there may be a perfectly good API available (or a library available for download?). Answers on a silver platter or vague hints are all welcome :)
