The test was written before PluggableMenuItemSpec was implemented -  
at the time, ToolBuilder used MenuItemMorphs, which can accept either  
a selector or a MessageSend as an action. The test verifies that  
selectors can be used as actions. Apparently when  
PluggableMenuItemsSpec was implemented, it was designed to work only  
with MessageSends.

Probably best just to delete the test.
