eyeDock feature request(s)

Before I forget to ask again, I have a feature request involving eyeDock. Is it possible to allow sub-menus off the main menu.  If I were you, I would do opposite of what you are currently doing. Disallow any more than one menu coming off the bottom eyeDock bar, but allow up to 2 or 3 layers of sub-menus to come off of that. Once all of the apps, docs, and what-have-ya's have been loaded into it, it will look, feel and operate much more like an actual OS, and be more familiar to the average first time user, which theoretically will lead to a stronger desire to return.

I really didn't mean to make a second request, but on a related note I was looking at the Access Control settings attempting to disable the user's ability to modify their eyeDock config, but didn't see it. It is extremely easy for a new and over-exuberant user to completely destroy his eyeDock configuration during the customization process.  For example, I messed mine up beyond my ability to repair at least twice, and my wife turned off her top dock bar without realizing it. In this case, I believe the best and likely easiest solution is to have only one, universal eyeDock config, controlled by root. When new apps are installed, it is then up to root whether they get added to the dock bar and how they get added. Everyone will get the new app, and an updated config file can follow as soon as root updates the universal master.
