UserMenus For OS3/AROS Released

UserMenus opens a small window on the screen titlebar which when active, displays your user defined menus.Move the window or change its color and select the Save menu item to create ENVARC:UserMenus.prefs.

This prefs file holds the color, x position, y position,window width, and window height.

You can change the sizeof the window by editing this file. Included are executables for i386 AROS and OS3+, an illustrative example menu definition file for Wanderer, and this readme file.

Use commandline argument -f PATH/UserMenus.def to load a definition file from shell.

Not a bad idea tbh, but it's a bit "big" for a program that just makes menus (I know it's due to Hollywood but still...).

Some features for me that are essential to become usable are the following:
- Being able to pass parameter from a clicked WB icon to the command/program executed (like [] is used in ToolsDaemon)
- Being able to run more than one command/program per menu item
- Being able to use a Hotkey (like Amiga-U for example) that will target the frame in order to use RMB for user menus instead of having to click the frame.

Since it uses Holywood some more eyecandy features woudn't hurt like:
- Being able to assign a small image for every menu item (like 16x16, 24x24, 32x32)
- Having some sort of GUI Editor (like ToolsPrefs2) to avoid messing with external text editor

Just my 2 cents
