menus: menu item numbers?

Is it possible to work with menu items by item number, instead of by name
(label)?

I would need it
- to set the currently selected item  ("set the menuItem of btn "optionmenu"
to 3")
- to find the currently selected item ("put the menuItem of btn "optionmenu"
into V")

instead of the scripted workarounds:
- setting the label myself ("set the label of btn "optionmenu" to line 3  of
btn "optionmenu")
and on menupick pItem
- finding the item number myself ("put lineoffset(pItem,text of btn
"optionmenu") into V")
