The menu is strictly an OS X service, so there would have to be a lot of code-branching for each platform, and lots of specialized handlers to accomodate similar functionality on non-Mac machines. I was probably a little presumptuous, forgetting that some folks develop only for their own use.

1. I develop in-house software for my language school; all programs 
running on either Linux
(Ubuntu) or Mac OS 10.4.

2. I develop a piece of commercial software (Devawriter Pro) for 
Macintosh and Windows,
and, ultimately, Linux.

All my software development is done in my bedroom.

Does that make me a home-brewer?

Certainly seems that your categories are a bit too neat, and have too 
sharply defined boundaries
to make sense in the real world.
