The dynamic menus have been reimplemented so as to make them easier to write,
even though no documentation is available yet. 'tm-menu (my-menu)' is equivalent
to 'menu-bind my-menu' for non-dynamic menus, but, contrary to normal menus,
dynamic menus defined using tm-menu can take parameters and there are several
primitives for generating the entries dynamically from Scheme.
Just grep the Scheme code for tm-menu in order to look at the existing
