I don't have much in my old HC Home stack that I've needed in Rev, but 
you're right, doMenu is implemented in a limited way in Rev.  It 
provides hooks only to a handful of common menu items, but exactly which 
ones are supported doesn't appear to be documented.  Does anyone here know?

To solve the problem at hand, looking in Rev's menu script shows that 
the Object->Object Inspector menu item triggers this line:

   send "revBuildPropertyPalette" to stack "revTemplatePalette"

You should be able to use that in place of doMenu to open the property 
inspector for controls.
