This is neither easy nor intuitive for the average user.  Heck, *I* find
it unintuitive. ~,^  It also thus depends on the keyboard, which can be
slightly annoying.  I imagine there may be some sort of accessibility
issue involved as well.

The submenu idea is best; if that isn't easily possible, someway of
ensuring there is always some easy panel space to get to might be good
as (say a few pixels at each end of the panel if the hide buttons are
disabled).  Right-clicking on the menu/window-list-corner-thingy in the
Menu Panel should perhaps work, too.
