I finally did a change which has been waiting a long time. I hadn’t
done it if I had I known how much work it would be. What a chance that
I didn’t know!
It have been waiting for so long because it is a backwards
incompatible API change which caused quite much code changes.
Fortunately AFAIK only in applications maintained by myself.
I had to do it now because Mahmoud is soon going to learn about
/dev/menu, and it would have been a shame to do this on the
system as is was until now. And anyway it is better to do it now than
when other developers have started to use it.
