Oh I see. So there's a fourth type: A default item which is a submenu
that has a default of its own.  Then I suggest we make the default
menu items designated by their font rather than an icon, and let the
user set that font in their rc.xml as they do the standard menu item
font.  By default we can make it bold and the regular font normal
weight.  A user could instead choose to underline or italicize or
whatever they like.
