Hi!
Menus now support underline-accelerators.
This basically means you press alt+f to open the file menu, etc.
Thanks to Donal K. Fellows of the Tk team for pointing me in the right direction :)

All that remains to do now (I think!) is:
1) Keyboard shortcuts printed at right hand side of menu (eg Ctrl+O for Open)
2) Bindings for option buttons.
3) Moving menus in-screen if they are posted (partially) off-screen

    Thank you all for the comments :-) Karel reminded me of a few things to do on menus as well, but I've done those now! They were a couple of bugfixes and an important feature I'd missed - when the menu is posted outside the screen, bring it in.

    Thanks again for all your support!

    Tom
