I've a site coming up in a month or so where I'll need to do this.  My current 
plan is to not use the primary links feature directly but show the primary 
links MENU in the header block, the simply set each top level item in the 
menu to always-expand.  That gets you all the data you need.  Add CSS and 
jQuery to taste.

We'll see if it really is that simple in a month or so. :-)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
