That seems easily doable.

EDIT: In the old OT49 library on the 50g, there was a function LMN that would retrieve the items in any menu on the calculator, in order. RCLMENU LMN would return a list. Handy!

RCLMENU/RCLMENUOTHR/RCLMENULST have the first visible element of the menu encoded in the lower bits, so it's already available. The MENUCODE tells you library/menu number/first visible item, all encoded in various bits.
You can use them in menu key handlers to know what menu key the user pressed.

Of course. New commands will behave just like builtin.

Now I'll be off line for a few days. Hurricane nuisance.
