Well... given how things are going lately, my brain is always on autopilot... :(

There's only one last question (I hope...) that little pin in the "Submenu_split_selection" is provided by Windows, there's no possibility to replace it with a custom bitmap, am I wrong?

Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to play with your creation for a while, but I'll keep an eye on its development.

I don't remember if I've already asked you before, does it "only" changes the style of the start menu, or it's possible to modify the shape/position of the elements?
