I understand why you would create the ADMIN_menu function. What I 
don't understand is why you changed the interface to 
ADMIN_list/ADMIN_simpleList. Couldn't the list functions just call 
ADMIN_menu? That would minimize the code changes wouldn't it? This 
change means no 1.4.1 plugins that use ADMIN_{simple|}list are 
compatible with 1.4.2.

The call to ADMIN_menu could have been done in ADMIN_list:

    if ($text_arr['has_menu'])  {
         retval .= ADMIN_createMenu($menu_arr, $text_arr['title'], 

Perhaps removing it from ADMIN_simpleList makes sense (as it makes 
the function simpler). But having to change all those other lists 
seems like a waste of time. If the interface to the list functions 
keeps changing, it makes them less useful for a library function.
