but I was moved to implement something I wanted to do for a long time.
The menu configuration is now done through a subdirectory /experiment/menu. Each entry corresponds to
one menu button. Set to "y" to show it, set to "n" to hide it.
Buttons are displayed in the same order as they are in ODB, to change the order of buttons,
change their order in ODB (odbedit command "move").
This fixes the long standing problem with adding new midas pages - they were not automatically added to
the existing "menu buttons" lists. So for example when the "chat" page was added, I did not know about it
for a long time (and some people still do not know about it's existence) because it is was not included in
my "/experiment/menu buttons" list in all my already existing experiments. When the "start" and
"transition" pages were added, probably nobody knows that they exist.
Now new buttons for new pages are automatically added to the list (via mhttpd.cxx::init_menu_buttons()),
the users have an option to hide them by setting their values to "n".
