If memory serves, copy/paste support is provided by the *container*
object, not the object being copied and pasted.  Thus, your container
works fine because you're copying it in and out of Folder objects that
provide support.  But your inner objects don't work because ZSimpleMenu
doesn't provide them with copy/paste support.

Have ZSimpleMenu inherit from Folder instead of SimpleItem and see if
that doesn't fix it.
