I wouldn't mind that, of course, since it does come up often, but I'm 
not sure what the answer would be. Menus work as expected on Windows and 
Linux; we'd need a cross-platform way to implement them on Mac without 
making the developer write branching code.

As far as I can see, the confusion comes from those who don't understand 
the scrolling behavior. Once they get that, it falls into place. But if 
there's an easier solution I'm sure RR would consider it. I just can't 
think of any other way to implement it.

Perhaps menus should be independent objects? Then the engine could 
manage them. There would still be issues with the space at the top of 
the stack, where menus show on two platforms but not on the other. How 
would you handle that?
