I dont have any problems with that. I've been using
MenuuScrollPage=false until now, and I'll be using MenuScrollPage=true
from now on, so thats fine with me. 1.3.27 will show if the masses will

I had another idea about long menus: Orientation in them is a bit
difficult, you usually dont know very well where you are. And its
difficult to see whether you just paged down a complete page, a partial
page or just one line. I think this would improve by adding a pseudo
scroll bar to long menus, similar to the timebar in channel OSD. The
scroll bar would visually show which part of the menu is visible, and
would visually show the movement from one page to the next.

For implementation, the skin needs to know about first and count, but
thats a small change. The rest would be skin implementation. I would
offer to implement it, if needed.
