Beware though, its got a nasty bug. (I'll try and create a patch for it
once the JIRA issues have been fully imported and I can see if an issue
already exists)
The bug is:

if you click on a dropdown item (instead of on the button) a button click
event is also dispatched, when in reality it shouldn't. (IMHO, I'd love to
hear counter arguments)

To work around it, in the itemClick handler check for 'popUp.visible ==
true', then you'll know an item in the dropdown has been clicked, and
not simply the button itself.

cheers,

Roland
