Famous last words. There have been a number of similar hacks done in
the menu code already, but they all had to be removed because they
broke too many things; I have no reason to believe your proposed fix
will be any different. The issue is a fundamental problem with the way
menus are implemented, and it can't simply be hacked around, it has to
be fixed right.
