Getting Used to Win 7 Libraries

I've been running the RC for a good while now and am just beginning to explore the Libraries. Have added several and would like to have them appear in the right hand (gray) part of the Start Menu in addition to Document, Pictures and Music. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you very much.

I believe that these items are hard coded as are there positions - I'm sure that someone will provide a way of circumventing this in time.

One workaround you could consider is to pin an explorer icon to the taskbar next to the start menu and pin the libraries you want access to to it's jump list. a simple click and upwards drag action will then provide access to the libraries.

That certainly would be one way to do it.
