Google and jump menus

GG reponds to a few questions about spidering and indexing.
GoogleGuy Says: [Link to quote]
JoeHouse, we generally pick up index pages pretty quickly. It's kinda like a curve over time. As time goes by and more people link to your site, Googlebot tends to delve deeper too.

AhmedF, you asked "When/why is there no cache to be shown for a page?" That can happen when we saw a link to your page, but haven't gotten to crawl the actual page itself yet. Usually with more time or with more people finding/linking to your site, we'll go deeper with crawling for a site.

Fearless, as far as php pages and jump menus, the file type of the page (php, asp, cgi, etc.) doesn't matter. If your jump menus are JavaScript or the links are buried in some esoteric way, our regular crawler might not be able to pull those links out. When in doubt, a nice site map can improve sites for users and crawlers.

Hope that helps..

Does that mean that if we were only using standard html based jump menus that the Googlebot would have no problem spidering those pages it jumps to, and the only reason it might not have is because of the spidering depth?
