so how i thought it would work is maybe this, that the menu produced
would create a foo.xml (or whatever)and maybe the openbox menu would
include it like <file>foo.xml</file> (this is sort of easy to do,
maybe?) is there not a timer in the openbox menu? i know there *was*.
anyway just a though, as is still cool, even as a static menu.

thanks Manuel!
