Icons in UI menus are not all that uncommon on OS X. I picked a couple of
apps at random and found menu icons in use:

iChat (status menu)
OmniGraffle (tool selection menu)
LittleSnapper (publishing menu)
Adium (status menu)
XCode (documentation navigation menu)

In LiveCode we have to roll our own menus using stacks. You end up having to
recreate highlights, rollovers, etc. It would be really nice to be able to
display the icons in a standard OS menu.
