[Bf-funboard] Pie Menus as part of user interface

Personally, I think of it as a direct replacement for
the toolbox, w-menu, etc. I hope the retention of
linear menus won't be necessary, as a pie menus setup
can show all of the tool-boxes current entries in a
12-sliced pie, more or less maximum number of entries
that can be used for a pie menu and still be easy to
use by habit, although cutting the toolbox into
multiple submenus to have the user do 'mouse gestures'
might have faster throughput...
