Regarding that, we'll have user-definable context menus at some point in 2.0. I really want to have some way to define a set of menus and then propagate them to sets of tokens. We'll probably model it based on JavaScript prototypical inheritance model since the macros will be written in JS (likely to make things simpler for us) but from the user's standpoint it'll "just work". :)

Little off topic but... :)

Any thought (for 2.0) on creating a "Radial" menu? (I'm sure there is a GUI term for it but no idea). Basically, on click of the token, a "Ring" of menu options pop, and it spirals out from there. If you've seen Microsoft Note (Metro app), it has a really kick donkey menu system that looks cool and works really well for touch (and just fine for mouse as well).

Yeah, I'm interested in a radial menu system. But putting text onto a radial menu option gets tricky. It's not the calculation of the angle, that's easy. It's doing it in a way that's still readable. We'd have to rely pretty heavily on images instead and while there are sets of internationally recognized symbols (like Exit, Do Not Enter, and so on) I don't think there's such a symbol for Aura or Macro...

However, the menu system used could be designed as a plugin anyway. That would let third parties implement the menu however they want.
