No, I mean changing the application ID (char[8]) used to search for the 
AES application ID by appl_find() call. The menu entry doesn't matter 
here, but also would be a nice feature to let scripts change it too. ;)

E.g. When you are searching for the AES PID of the AV Server you do 
something like (optimistic example - no error handling):

export AVSERVER="THING   "

avID = appl_find( getenv( "AVSERVER" ) );
msg[0] = AV_INIT;
msg[1] = appId;
msg[2] = 0;
appl_write( avID, msg, 16 );
