I've never used a traditional hd install, but in a frugal hd install, you would need to save the mydsl extension (opera in your example) in the folder /mydsl or /mydsl/optional for it to appear after re-boot.

UCI extensions always need to be reloaded when you reboot, even if you have a traditional harddrive-installed filesystem, because they are mounted rather than installed.  You can either add a mydsl-load command to /opt/ or you can make the mounted extension a permanent writeable directory:
1) mount the extension (example: /opt/opera925 would be created)
2) copy the /opt/opera925 directory to a temp location
3) umount the extension
4) move the temp directory to /opt/opera925
5) add this to a convenient spot in .jwmrc:
   <Program label="Opera"> /opt/opera925/bin/opera </Program>

The syntax used in the mydsl menu files is for Fluxbox, a carryover from when Fluxbox was the default window manager.
