Although \l {MenuItem}{MenuItems} are most commonly used with Menu, it can
contain any type of item.
+ \section1 Margins
+ As it is inherited from Popup, Menu supports \l {Popup::}{margins}. By
+ default, all of the built-in styles specify \c 0 for Menu's margins to
+ ensure that the menu is kept within the bounds of the window. To allow a
+ menu to go outside of the window (to animate it moving into view, for
+ example), set the margins property to \c -1.
