Popup Menu Drop Shadows in JGoodies Windows L&f and Plastic L&f

I've added popup menu drop shadows in my Windows l&f and
the JGoodies Plastic l&f family. This feature is optional.

1) I'd like to ensure that drop shadows are used only
on platforms that do not provide a drop shadow.
For example, the Mac OS X already paints shadows.

2) I'd like to automatically active the feature on
hardwareaccelerated platforms, for example Windows.

3) I'd like to deactivate the feature on the Windows platform
if the Windows desktop property for menu shadows is disabled.

Which platforms have a native drop shadow?

What platforms are hardware accelerated?

How can I detect the Windows menu shadow setting?
Is there a desktop property I can request?

Thanks in advance,
