Well, that's true for disabled menu items, but not for sub-menu items - so
long as you remove the "autoarm" property. If you do that, what you get back
is the form: <menuItemName>|<subMenuItemName|<subSubMenuItemName>, so in a
menu that looks like this:

Test
    SubTest1
        SubSubTest1
        SubSubTest2
    SubTest2

If you pick "SubSubTest2", you get back in "menuPick":

  Tets|SubTest1|SubSubTest2
