I'd be happy to, but it'll take me a little while since we're moving at the moment...

I suspect it would need to be done from the main thread.

I gave some thought to that. Essentially, I think the functions for updating the menus should be part of our view delegate (so in the core), but exposed in a public api to the user through the addon. That way the system menu can be updated when an Allegro window gains focus automatically and we keep our book-keeping in one place. This seems the easiest way to organise things.
