I agree, but it's not really possible to align them properly in a
variable-width font.

For this reason, I considered modifying the lucid menu code to support
true alignment of parts of menu-items*.  While I think that probably
wouldn't be too hard, I'm not sure what the right thing to do for other
menu packages is (Lesstif & the various non-X platforms).

*Probably by doing something like making it look for magic characters
 in menu-item strings, e.g. TAB or something otherwise non-displayable.

Run away!  Run away!
