Since OG 7 makes heavy use of Panels I think a cTools content type would be very handy to use for rendering the menu in a pane.
By having this functionality as a cTools content type the settings for the pane is exportable. The setting for OG Menu that is link menu title to group node is now optional per pane. By having the group context configurable it makes the settings very flexible.
After a IRC chat with rv0 this functionality should be added as a submodule so that OG Menu does not add more dependencies than it has to. The supplied submodule adds a cTools content type that has settings for
- Provided context "Organic groups membership: Group gid"
- Link the pane title to the group node
- Override title text (standard)
