That's pretty optimal, especially since you wish to override things
like 'active' or 'checked'

I use the following scheme (with LuaJava/Swing)

       "Open Machine",open_machine,
       "Close Tab", close_current_machine,
       "Leave Network",leave,
       "Reset Radio",reset,
       "Reconnect to Server",reconnect,
       "Putty to Current",putty_into,
       "Putty to Machine",putty_machine,
       "Execute Remote Command",remote_execute_command
        "Power voltage",power_voltage,
        "Power status",power_status

The idea is that a menu item is a label plus either a function (an
actual item) or a table (which will be a submenu)

Things like accelerators, checked status, etc get encoded in the label string.
