Three things:

Firstly, that sounds like "Mystery Meat navigation" to me
- for example, I'd never noticed the Savannah pop-out menus before
and I'm a member of a few projects there.  There's nothing to indicate
those submenus exist before they pop-out.

Secondly, GNUstep menus don't pop-out on hover, for good reason IMO.
One alternative is to make it look like GNUstep menus, with arrows and
so on, but when I trialled a design which looked/felt like the GNUstep
menu, it was pretty heavily flamed, so I doubt using pop-out menus
would be popular.

Finally, Savannah's menus don't use Javascript and nor should ours.
But this is possible with CSS only (maybe with a little JS fix for IE)
if you want to do it.

I could be wrong, of course, but be cautious if you go that way.
