[Mono-osx] Winforms app under Mac OS X: change menu name

The MonoDevelop for Mac Preview seems to have done the trick and more:
I am not sure how.  There is a mention that the Mac-friendly features
involve a lot of PInvokes of Carbon functions.

When I tried to do something similar with Cocoa via MCocoa & MObjc there
seemed to be no connection between the menu displayed and the mainMenu
property of the NSApplication object.  It was nil initially.  When I tried
to create a menu and set this property to it, there was no change in the
displayed menu.
