Adds a menu item at to end of the menu. Note: To add a MenuItem that invokes a command or callback it is better to use Menu.AddCommandItem or Menu.AddCallbackItem.

Note:It's preferable to use Menu.AddSubMenu in python for adding sub-menu objects instead of invoking AddItem with siMenuItemSubmenu.

Tip: See the C++ API and Python examples for creating a Simple Menu plug-in to see this method in action.

Note: This method could return an invalid object in python, use Menu.AddItem2 instead.
