It is just the name of a CGI variable that, if set, will stop the
display of the menu item.

If you are adding locale=en_US at the end of your URL, you could


in that field. Any time the "locale" CGI variable was present,
it would not be displayed.

depends_on is the opposite.

You also have to set "exclude_on=exclude_on" in your [menu ..]
