Would it be feasible to have the C support allow this and then export that capability to Lua and Python and Visual Basic and INTERCAL and any other extension language we offer now or in the future? :-)

I.e., yes, we should have a *generic* mechanism to allow added taps to update the menu, so the extension language doesn't matter, as per Richard's comment

and then we should update existing extension language support to use it.
