stack menu

I'm already adjusting the height of the stack and placing the  
"menuItem" groups appropriately, thanks. I was hoping to scroll the  
whole stack. Putting everything into a group and scrolling the group  
was what I was hoping to avoid. Sounds as if I'll have to, though, if  
I want to proceed. Bummer. It's not an elegant solution, since when  
the menu is short the scrollbar will be superfluous and look a bit  
silly, and I'll have to detect the distance between the bottom of the  
pulldown menu button and the bottom of the screen to know what the max  
menustack height will have to be. Not sure if it's all worth it given  
that the result will hardly look like a native Mac control.

Hmmmm. Can you scroll a group with the scrollwheel using a rawkeydown  
handler if the group has no scrollbar? With or without a frontscript?  
That at least would *look* like a regular menu.
