Description:


ClickMenuViews are like menuViews, but deselects automatically
after clicked on an entry.

ClickMenuViews can be used as persistent menus (i.e. non-popping); 
for example, the old launcher uses an instance of ClickMenuView.

CAVEAT:
    to support a better NextStep look, some popUpMenus should 
    become automatically a clickMenu ... (really ?)

Instance protocol:

event handling
o  buttonRelease: button x: x y: y
redefined to automatically deselect on release


Examples:


stupid example:
    |top menu1 menu2 application|

    application := Plug new.
    application respondTo:#foo
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'foo'].
    application respondTo:#bar 
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'bar'].
    application respondTo:#baz 
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'baz'].
    application respondTo:#more1 
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'more1'].
    application respondTo:#more2 
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'more2'].
    application respondTo:#more3 
                     with:[Transcript showCR:'more3'].
    application respondTo:#quit 
                     with:[top destroy].
