It's just a callable that is visible where the create_menu_item is run.

Suppose that you created a wxapi module that implements this create_menu_item

Add to ipy_user_conf.py:

import wxapi
def sayhi():
  print "Hello!"

wxapi.create_menu_item('Do stuff!', sayhi)

Then, when you start wxipython, it will run ipy_user_conf.py when
IPython starts up, and register that menu command.
