I agree Tor. The problem with doMenu is, what happens when you want to create your own menu group? None of the doMenu calls to the standard menus will work anymore.

Then all it takes is a call to this handler, be it from the menu item or from somewhere else. This way you do not need to send a doMenu command at all. This is how I teach my students to structure their code.
