You should be able to get this working. Styles, action-lists and menus
can all be updated dynamically. You can use the 'readadditionalconfig'
action for this. By setting menu item function to readadditionalconfig
and parameter to a config file that will update your menu it could work.
You might have to make sure that menuperform is executed before the menu
is mapped, don't really remember all this that well, long time since I
played with this.

This should be easy. There's an example in the CVS tree. In waimea/data
there's a pre-action.conf file, place that one in ~/.waimea/ and
standard action files should read it. And of course edit it to work the
way you want.
