I appreciate the effort they put into them however I feel that it was a 
misguided or incomplete effort. A better option would have been to make 
the menu work as usual in the normal themes and do something different 
in the new ones. I realize that this is a free program and that much 
hard work has gone into it. I personally have given over 4 years to this 
project, supporting people on the list, writing support scripts and 
drivers. I know my coding skills are not up to the developer level 
however I feel that I have a right to voice my opinion. The devs are 
welcome to ignore or to criticize me for my comments, that is their 
right and privilege. My plans are to  try to find or develop a 
unofficial patch for those who desire, like me, to have the old 
functionality back.
