[TYPO3-english] Show and collapse submenus

I needed to do the same thing and didn't see a straightforward way to do 
it with typoscript or any of the extensions that I found.  I ended up 
writing my own extension to display the menu.  I'm sure there is a much 
cleaner way to do this.  But, this gave me exactly what I needed.  See 
the attached extension script.

To call the extension from typoscript, you can put a mark in your 
template for the menu and tie it to the extension using something like 
the following:

   page.10.marks.MAIN_MENU = USER_INT
   page.10.marks.MAIN_MENU.userFunc = user_ppc_pi1->main_menu

Hope it helps.
