Not currently but that should be easy to add.

There is currently no real docs sadly. Basicaly each element at the root
describe a menu, the attributes and eventual content depend on the menu
type. Most available attributes should appear at least one time in the
example config file, otherwise you have to RTFS (there is a table with
all attributes at the start of each libmenu/menu_*.c).
