Damn. Hmmm. Any idea how I ought to go about this? Should I be using 
something other than the menu to give the user what is effectively a 
set of checkboxes?

I've looked through the form library documentation and there doesn't 
appear to be any way of doing checkboxes there either. The closest 
would appear to be an enum field with "true" and "false" options (Or 
could I use "X" and " " with some event/driver hackery to get space to 
toggle the selection?) but that doesn't seem right somehow.

What have I missed?

It reverses the logical flow of conversation!
