"Arming" a pulldown menu button -- a hack

As we know, at least on Mac OSX, for a pulldown menu button, setting
the autoArm, autohilite and Armed to true and applying a different
icon to those states does not take effect. Nothing happens.. Worse:
In fact one of those properties, if set to true, interferes with the
proper action (menu does not open) So, we see now why those
properties are not offered in the inspector for such menu buttons.
So, I tried this work around... and it seems to work just fine...
set the icon of me to 1115
set the icon of me to 1114
on menuPick pItemChosen
## do stuff here
Does anyone know if there are any caveats to this? the two mouse
activity handlers to not see to interfere at all with functionality.
