Is there a built in or module way to add menu items with hook_menu to serve as containers, not links? I have a module set. Main module provides central configuration and satellite modules do actual work. main module should create submenu satellite modules will use to add their entries to, but there is no form nor page to put in the main element. Is there a way to avoid dummy content?
I want to avoid editing template.php - I use theme downloaded from drupal.org and I don't feel creating a subtheme to get that is really worth the effort - there should be an easier way, shouldn't it?
I know there are ways to do this with Menu UI, but I need it to work out of the box for my clients, so UI is not an answer.
