    This is really a feature, try it with a visible option there which depends
    on a choice option.
    First for the choice type I think it's simpler to just look at the first
    choice option, anything more complex simply has to specify the type

    The bigger problem is that menu_finalize() is little complex which makes
    such changes more difficult, basically it does two things (updating the
    dependencies and generating the menu structure) in one pass and it depends
    on a specific order, which is nonobvious. I really should clean this up to
    make it easier to follow what's happening.
    For now this means the dependency to the choice symbol has to be added a
    little later right before the call to menu_add_symbol().

    bye, Roman
