I'm looking for perspective on why Tk developers use menubuttons in GUI
apps instead of menubars. On the Mac, menubuttons map to the Aqua
combobox widget, and they make Tk apps look *very* weird. Moreover, the
code usually isn't simple to hack to convert into a menubar.

What do menubuttons offer that menubars don't?

Cheers,
