   >The menubar restoration is performed by *restore-lisp-functions*.  The
   Is there any way to NOT do the functions in *restore-lisp-functions*, but
   have them saved for re-boot.  ie, allow the user to choose quit, which
   prompts for a save, then does a dumplisp which includes the
   *restore-lisp-functions*, but DOESN'T then do those functions.

I imagine it would be easy to explicitly code this behavior into
the functions which you add to *RESTORE-LISP-FUNCTIONS*.  You would
also have to backpatch the function(s) which are already on
*RESTORE-LISP-FUNCTIONS* (by wrapping them in another function
which calls them conditionally).
