I would be interested to know what features these menus have that
are not in the latest version of the mike-0.04 top menu. Note that if
you order an item, and then follow all the branches of the Checkout
menu it does (I think) what these do.

Obviously the CSS definitions for these are crisper than the one
in my demo, but that is all tied up with what the CSS classes are
defined to be.
