A very simple echo area menu is http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/OneTwoThreeMenu.

I have some modifications to it that: automatically format the items
into columns; allow for continually re-displaying the menu until C-g
is pressed; and allow for any keystroke to select an item.  I use my
modified version but I wanted to work on it a bit more before
submitting a patch.  If you're interested I can send it.
