that would be the users responsibility, of course.  if he picks option
without renumbering them accordingly, it simply won't work, abort with a
message or use a default layout or whatever.  the "system" or "vendor"
supplied numbers would have their own range of numbers, of course.

this way, users could do away with menues he doesn't like or put others at
their spaces, you know what i mean?  or swap menue spaces etc.

i think i understood that.  but now that you remind me, i'm not so sure
anymore :)
