I agree with your point that the operations of selecting from the list
is fundementally a menu-like operation. And I think that this suggestion
about the API (which is how the Gal widget works) directly goes against
that... if arbitrary content is added to the widget, there is no way we can 
make it display or behave exactly like a menu.
