I think I forgot to mention the reason for the text/xml file was so
that the entire menu structure could be done in the one file. e.g
   <general settings>
       <display>....(all the display options and sub menus)...</display>
       <... (all the rest of generel settings) ... >
   </general settings>
   <next menu> .... </next menu>

Now, if that could be done by preproccessor magic then that would be
great... but I cant tihnk how to do it simply..?
