I'll round up some replies below, but lead with an "issue". Not really a
bug, more like something to document. You have to set the string for a Ring
before you set the value. Makes sense if you think about it, but since I'm
pulling the values out of CORBA (don't ask) I was debugging the wrong thing
for a while. ;)

This sounds exactly right. The decision as to whether the menu will use the
keys should be based on the hardware, or on the administrator's decision.
Outside the menu, it's the client's problem.

I think that the config file should be able to disable the Options and
Screens menus.

Come to think of it, I think I'd leave those alone if I could make them come
at the end of the list (after my menus).

The testing menu should be a configure option, IMHO.

Thanks for all the help, guys, this looks great!
