This is only partly true - these features can only by {en,dis}abled by
resources on platforms which have them.  This doesn't include, e.g., the
Linux tty.  Although this tty doesn't implement a scroll bar, it can
display a menu bar.  (I'd love to find out if it can be used by a GPM
mouse; so far I've not managed to get it working.)
