Modifying the Header to Include Drop Down of all Spaces instead of a link to Spaces Page

Hi all,

I am trying to modify Confluence 5.X to make the Spaces Link that is in the Header become a drop down of all available Spaces for the logged in User (similar to the Browse button that appears when using the Documentation Theme). In 4.X I used to do this with the Adaptavist Theme Builder Menu Macro and it would generate a list of all Spaces. Unfortunately all of our users are revolting against having to click on the Space page to go to another page to select their space.

The only part I have figured out (which is not much) is to modify aui-header-primary.vm to add new links in the header. For example I can add a link to the Users Default Home Page before the Spaces/People/Browse/Create by including the following code.

<ul class="aui-nav">
    <li><a href="">Home</a></li>

I would appreciate any assistance in this.
