If the menu group is set as the stack's menubar, the arrow keys work
automatically the way you want without any scripting.If the menu has
focus, the arrow keys should work as-is. (I just tried it in a new stack
in Windows 7.) You may have some handlers that are interfering. If you
have an arrowkey handler, check to see if the target is your menubar
group and just pass arrowkey if that's the case.
