Anybody figured out how to use the new menus system to create a
dropdown menu? Generally I use this code in my top menus:


Which creates a nested LI-UL-LI type of system out of top-level pages
and their children. With this, I can then easily use CSS hovers to
make it into a dropdown menu. You can do something similar with

But the new menu system doesn't seem to have any way to do this sort
of thing. Or, at least, I haven't figured out a way yet. I thought it
was going to be more like widgets instead, where you have different
types of things you can drag onto a menu.

Basically, the new menus system just looks way too simplistic to me .
If the new menu system isn't as capable as the standard ways of doing
things, then why would a theme author ever implement it?
