In Matlab, the default menus (such as File, Edit) are uimenu objects which are children of the current figure. The property "HandleVisibility" is set to "off" so they are not returned by

However, they can be returned with findall or allchild.

For FLTK, this system is already implemented. When figure.m is called to create a new figure, it calls scripts/plot/util/private/__add_default_menu__.m to add uimenu objects. However, for Qt figures the menus are different and they are created directly in libgui/graphics/Figure.cc.

The simplest thing, I think, is to have _add_default_menu_.m also run for Qt and then eliminate the C++ code in Figure.cc
