Excellent work! I really like the new menu system. It completely solves my problem of not having the labels from the submenus available at the CLI. Thank you so much.

One minor thing I noticed that may need tweaked is the use of the caret (^) in the menu label to set a hot key works well on the main menu, but when the same MENU LABEL statement is used as the title text for the submenu, the caret is displayed as part of the title text.

I'll keep playing with it for a bit as I re-write my menu tree in this new format. I'll post any other findings.

Again, great work.
