This is temporary. Right now many commands that operate on lists simply use MAP (like PURGE). However, MAP returns a list with the results of the individual commands, therefore no result leaves an empty list on the stack.
I need to implement it slightly better, with a << MAP DROP >>. If I have time I'll do that for the next update, but I may push it for later.

A more pleasing look (at least for me), could be produced in several ways:
- returning to the system used by HP for the menus (which shortens the displayed names by two pixels)
This would be easy to do.

- using only blank menus

I'll test the gray separators and see how they look.
The different color helps visualize that they are different menus, so I'm not sure about using all white, they need to be different somehow.
I'll work on a more polished look once the menus are fully functional, and we can test many different cases using TMENU.
I even thought of having the text slowly scroll on items that are longer than it fits on screen, but it might be too distracting, we'll see.
