My taking is that he is saying "If I change a menu name the name of the 
handlers dont change the same way other things do".
For example, change abutton name, then all the button event handlers 
names xhange in the code.
Changinf menu names is different because "menus are not the same as 
normal classes". A popup menu in a control is one example.
I think he is commenting on one aspect of menus where they are different 
and "you" (a gambas application developer have to generate a mindset 
that recognizes that differene.
p.s. If I'm correct in what Dag was referring to then I think using 
actions just because I might want to change a menu item name some time 
in the future can't be cost justified!
