After reworking our current menu code I am more and more convinced that
a bigger change is needed here. As far as I understand the OpenStep
(MacOSX) specification it would be better if not the window, but is
representation (the NSMenuView) would own the windows that display the
menu. This would support the separation between classes that own
abstract information (NSMenu and NSMenuItem) from those who are able to
display this information (NSMenuView and NSMenuItemCell), which should
allow us to have drop in replacements for the representation with
different behaviour.

Well this makes sense. I was originally confused until I realized the 'View' in NSMenuView probably relates to the Object-Control-View paradigm as much as it relates to NSView. I'd at least try to do this part and see if it makes sense to to more after that.
