Folks if you're interested I found a way to make the menu expand to the left instead of the Right. I ran into the problem of having the menu
scroll off the right side of the screen in a framed environment.
The trick I learned was in the menu items files instead of having bl: 100 (or any other number), put a negative number there (ie: bl: -100).
Mind you that you should watch any subsequent items under that menu item
