Re: my next crazy idea... rework the menu system

OK, well, I've started figuring out how to store everything and I
think this is OK for a first go.

enum {
    MT_MENU = 0,
    MT_FUNCTION_CALL, /* used when the standard code wont work */
    MT_SETTING_INT, /* int with min,max */
    MT_SETTING_CHOICE, /* int where you have X choices, e.g replay mode */
} menu_item_type;

struct menu_item {
    enum menu_item_type type;
    union {
        struct menu_item **submenu; /* used with MT_MENU */
        /* this may have to be changed, but doing it this way does
save some space */
        struct { /* used with MT_SETTING_* */
            void (*function)(int); /* int typecast to bool for BOOL options */
            const struct opt_items** options; /* MT_SETTING_INT only */
            void (*formatter)(char*, int, int, const char*); /*
            void *variable; /* typecast to whatever we need */
        } options;
        bool (*function)(void); /* used with MT_FUNCTION_CALL */
    const char *title;

so, hopefully we will be able to do something like
static const struct menu_item main_menu = {MT_MENU, {&sound_menu,
&playback_menu, &...}, STR(LANG_MAIN_MENU};

Oh, the text file is not needed... I was just testing you all :D
