	Obviously, something like that could also be added - do you want to 
help develop Dabo? We're always looking for talented people with good 

	I should also mention that there is a class that creates a base 
menubar, with the typical menus that nearly all apps use. I needed to 
add to an existing menu; hence the call to menu.append().

	Since Dabo is now a two-person effort, we develop as we need things. I 
am working on the UI Designer, and needed to make menu entries. Up 
until now, we've coded them the wx-way, but I wanted to remove that 
wxPython dependency, so I took a detour from the UI Designer to create 
the menu classes. That's pretty much the pattern: things get written as 
they are needed.
