It comes from the menu definition. A menu item is:

{ Display Action Help }
where display is whatever you want to show in the label, and action can be one of:

* A single program: Runs with single key and all shift planes
* A list with 2 programs: { Single_key Shifted_key }: The first program runs for single key, the second runs for any shifts
* A list with 3 programs: { Single_key LS_key RS_key }: It runs single, left shift or right shift accordingly, but if you do LS-Hold it runs the LS_key program as well, and RS-Hold runs the RS_Key program
* A list with 5 programs: { Single_key LS_Key RS_Key LSHold_Key RSHold_Key }: This one doesn't need much explanation.

Basically, it should be a list with all 5 planes, but if a plane definition is missing, it will call the closest definition.
Because I only defined one "shifted" program to run, it runs for both shifts, with and without HOLD, but if/when somebody defines an action for each shift, that will change.

Not yet implemented. Whenever there is an interactive stack, the up key will activate it. In the meanwhile, you have a stack menu for programming.

Moving to a previous menu and changing the current directory are 2 different things, you are still in the VARS menu, the menu didn't change but it's your directory that changed. The Back button will take you to whatever menu you had before VARS. As you pointed out, we already have a very convenient shortcut for UPDIR and HOME in the Up cursor.

Let's say you are in directory MYDIR, and not showing the VARS menu. You press P for the main menu, then Vars and you see the variables, then press the Back button, and it does UPDIR, rather than take you back to the main menu? That means you couldn't ever go back to the previous menu from VARS.
