I've already posted to gtk-list just in case :). I'm not quite getting why it would be more appropriate on gtk-list as, to me, this qualifies as a programming problem, not a general question about GTK+ :).

Hmm...this should have been implemented.

Depends what you do with them. Sometimes its more useful to browse from left to right. In any case, you're probably thinking of menu's as in menu bar that you usually find at the top of a window; File, Edit, View, etc..

The lists I'm currently making are inside the window and you can browse through them using arrow keys; they are not part of the menu bar at the top of the window.
