this enhancement is part of my patches which i sent some days ago.....

I introduced an option "--label STRING" which will be used for display if it's set and which can also have environment variables (another part of my patches).

It's just a matter of taste though if to use a new option --id for an invariant menu id or to use the actual menuentry title as the invariant id and to have a new option --label for the display string. Both ways provide backward compatibility.

BTW, I just wonder a little that you refused my enhancements due to code freeze but are now enhancing anyway ;-)

Hello, all. Currently we use and recommend using the title for default variable. It has however following problems:
1) When device names change the title changes (because of the "(on $device)" part)
2) If user changes locale the part ", with" gets translated and again the title changes
Attached patch changes it to the use of IDs specified by --id but keeps title possiblity for backward compatibility. Any comments?
