It was a feature of most of the menu externals (e.g. menuPop()) and so
often used it might have seemed part of the lanugage. However, I do not
think that form of <<list offset to button>> is still in fashion.
Clicking in one place to see a list pop up somewhere else is no longer
the done thing. Rather, on Macs the list is adjusted vertically so the
current selection is under the mouse, and Rev handles this directly.
