      Then in your code, you just look for that option and present the item as
      either 'clim::menu-item or as 'clim::string (CLIM gods: isn't there
      something better than this?  String will usually be ok, but i would have
      preferred a clim::non-sensitive-presentation-type, which is different
      from 'null because null prints as "None", which is not what I want.  Did
      I miss something?).

   How about presenting it as clim:blank-area?  Then it would behave like
   the background.  Or am I missing something too? :)

How about calling WRITE-STRING (and maybe TERPRI) instead of PRESENT
for the non-presentation stuff?  That will make it pretty
non-sensitive!  (it will be treated as BLANK-AREA for translator purposes)
