And these menus are the most annoying things ever to use. Since it makes
using them really slow, because every time when the menu is "adjusted"
and new things get hidden or shown, the positions of the menu items
change, and thus "Gaussian blur is not the second item from the top on
the second submenu" anymore. So you actually need to read the menu texts
every time very carefully, which makes things very icky to use.
