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.
