ContextMenu styling (esp. for MenuButton)

the problem is not about using selectors (this works) - it is about 
ContextMenu being a PopupControl having a separate scene having a 
different stylesheet.

If you want to style a ContextMenu you have to add your stylesheet to 
ContextMenu.scene.root.styleSheets. This is difficult if the particular 
instance of a context menu is a private field of a MenuButton skin. 
Currently I get around this just by using a CustomMenuItem which uses a 
provided node which in turn has an invalidation listener on the scene 
property. Not pretty... ;-)

And this won't work for MenuButton if the menu has no custom items. 
Which is still an open problem...
