Extension=(QCMName="FootMenu",QCMParent="newRootQuickChatMenu",FileName="FootMenu.ini")
QCMName : a unique name to identify the quickchatmenu ... must be the same as the one in brackets in the inifile given as argument
QCMParent : the name of the parent. this is to say where in the tree you want the menu to appear (newRootQuickChatMenu is the top one ...
meaning your menu will be directly after pressing V
FileName : the name where the whole tree extension is defined.

Please always use name as unique as possible, i'm not sure what'll happen if there is twice the same name.
