One thought--possibly a bad one--is to store the entire MENU varible on
one line, but use "\n" to indicate carriage returns.  You'd have to
convert back and forth when displaying and reading/writing the file, but
you could ignore multi-line parsing.

Of course, you have to parse multi-line data to read the all the data
files anyway...
