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.
