Kjell, you don’t neccessarily need to make a subclass of the current Menu, just so long as your class implements enough of the same methods that it works ok. It’s kind of an obvious point but one I see people forgetting far too often. You may not want many - or any - of the same instance variables or internal behaviours.
All you should need to do is implement your menu (round menus! with sparkles!) and add a way to decide which menu class gets used.
 round menus have actually been used, not least in the ancient Momenta Smalltalk based tablets of the late 80’s/very early 90’s.
