[p4-feedback] How to get hold of the menubar from a plugin?

Hi all,

I am trying to add a JCheckBoxMenuItem to a menu from a plugin. How can 
I get hold of the WorkspaceFrame menu bar from a plugin (especially 
action plugins) in P4.1 when a plugin is being instantiated or initialized?

I tried  ProtegeManager.getInstance().getFrame(ws) from initialise() in 
an action plugin but the ProtegeManger still dosen't have the 
WorkspaceFrame by this point. 

I see that the Workspace has a initialiseExtraMenuItems(JMenduBar mb). 
It would be nice if there is a listener for this so plugins can do some 
extra menu setup when this is called.  Also, I notices that there are no 
Protege-specific listeners in Workspace, WorkspaceFrame, 
WorksspaceManager or ProtegeManager that could be used by plugins to do 
any customization. Are there plans to add few listeners to these classes?

Thank you,
Shahim Essaid
