I think they are both sort of experimental right now.  Personally, I
think that using the menu package is the way to go.  The only reason
I didn't switch 100% over to it was because it did not have any
support for long descriptions.

I believe the next version will have support for long descriptions,
so it would probably make sense to drop the .dwww-index method then.

I apologize for the poor state of documentation with dwww - I need to
do some more experimenting myself.
