Been a while since I've done this, but I seem to remember that you can use
"!u" to uncheck an item, that way if you have a menu that you don't want to
be modifying all the time with a lot of parsing, you can put "!u" in front
of all the menu items, and change char 2 to "c" or "u" as you please.

Untested, and I'm not sure if it works or if it's not "!u" but something
else. But might be worth looking into.
