I'm currently thinking of some tiny generic library for this, 
which does like this:

a) commands have names (maybe even cmdline args ?)
b) hotkeys are mappings between keycodes and commands
c) menus/buttons map to command names
d) the mappings can be loaded from external files

But: using command names doesnt necessarily mean that every time
strings have to be passed and parsed, instead an simple function
could construct a direct pointer list where the caller works on.
