I agree and think this is probably the quickest way
to get a menubar. However, there are problems
with the current implementation of popups, mainly
in its heavy handedness in dealings with focus
and mouse, which in turn causes colormap prolems . I am actually
thinking making popups with a form (keeping all the current API)
and let the main loop handle its interaction. menubar
then becomes a no brainer.
