> Please improve the Menu Control, by allowing the user to have a plug-able role cheking
for the menu items.
> Right now the Menu Control is using HttpRequest#isUserInRole(String role), but most webapplications
> don't use this strategy for user/roles management, so this method returns false for all
those cases :(.
> This is very limiting, making the existing Menu Control useless for most user applications,
thus forcing the users
> to make their own menu controls (or the hack the original one). 
> Please allow to set a different method for this operation by the user (if no other is
used, of course, the default one - mentioned above - would be used as before - so 100% backwards
> Thank you,
> Demetrios.
