Yes, I had forgotten that.

But what I had in mind was a "modern" way of doing such a thing: A 
pop-up window with two panes.  On the right, say, is a listing of the 
current menu items and sub-items in the order they appear in the front 
end menu system; on the left, then, is a listing of possible menu items, 
possibly including some others not already "installed".  By 
dragging-dropping, one can reorder items on the right; by 
dragging-dropping or similar visually-oriented means (say by 
highlighting an item on the left and clicking an "Add" button), one adds 
new items.  Etc.
