Now that the new focus architecture has been putback, the Swing team should 
reevaluate the JMenu/JMenuBar/JMenuItem code to see if portions of it can be 
implemented more effectively.

In particular, we would like to see the dependency on isManagingFocus removed.
JMenus should also generate temporary FOCUS_GAINED and FOCUS_LOST events when 
opened instead of the permanent events they currently generate.

As part of this, JComponent now exposes requestFocus(boolean) and requestFocusInWindow(boolean) as public. scott.violet@eng 2000-12-20 Additionaly JMenuBar invokes setFocusTraversalKeysEnabled(false) in its constructur. scott.violet@eng 2001-03-05
