Ah, yes.  Much more natural :)  I still have one little nit, though --
can you make it like other wm's, where we can move the cursor back to
the left and return to the parent menu?  If I accidentally go to
submenu 3 when I wanted submenu 4, it's a little bit of a pain to start
over.  Of course, this is a minor thing, but still, I would find it
even more natural than the current implementation.

Rest begards,
