Unless you need to skip certain cards or otherwise control which is the 
"next" card, you don't need arrowkey handlers for that. Just set the 
navigationarrows to true and card navigation by arrow keys will happen 
automatically.

But even if you do need arrowkey handlers, you can just check in the 
first line to see if the target contains the name of your menu group. 
Pass arrowkey if that's the case. If there are no menus on the card, the 
test won't be true and the handler will continue as it does now.

See how it goes. I don't think menuhistory changes until after the menu 
is closed.
