[joomla] Module display conditional

Ok, I think I see the problem now:
In joomla.php there is a function called mosMenuCheck.
When it's done doing it's thing, it calls $mainframe->set('menu',X) and
tells Joomla what menu item is being displayed.
So I'm assuming what you did was add to the module being displayed a
Perhaps I could extend mosMenuCheck and add an extra paremeter. So that
on the links coming IN if you placed ?dspmenu="Polls" for example, it
would force a fake to the Polls menu.
Than I would need to find some way of forcing a component or module to
add that paremeter to all it's URL's.
Which brings me back to modifying every module and many components to
add in an option to display "pretend to be menu" field.
Or maybe it would make more sense to have a Mambot which can be
configured to check all the url's on the page, and based on it's
configuration, append the parameter to them where it's useful.
Ehhh...what a bad set of choices, either hack core Joomla files or hack
every module I want to make this change to.
OMG, I've actually discovered a point in time where it would be usefull
to program in an object oriented fashion. If I could override that
function instead of changing it, I wouldn't need to hack the core file.
Heck has frozen over. :-)
