Considering that almost all configuration settings are in 
Oberon.Text I wonder whether the ET popup menu 
might be specified there also.  This syntax could work.

ETPopupMenu = {
  "Compiler.Compile *", 
  "ET.Open ^", 
  "ET.Move" }


"http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/OberonText.html" has this

"The group System.TimeDiff specifies the time difference of 
PC clock to GMT."

This implies that the PC hardware clock is set to local time 
and that System.TimeDiff = LT - GMT.  Was this really the 
intention of the designer?  A document about timekeeping 
in Linux ( http://www.linuxsa.org.au/tips/time.html )
claims that the preferred option is to keep it [hardware 
clock] in UTC ...".
