Well, to add flames to the fire, why don't we seriously consider popping up the context menu when holding the primary mouse button too? That way, you can provide a simple status bar message "Click with the mouse to select an item; keep the mouse pressed (or use Ctrl+F10) to see options for that item". That's a visual, and if it helps not provide a menu bar or unclutter it, I'd vote for it.

I wouldn't like to see that as a replacement for alternate click, but it
would create good interpolability with mac. Although, don't a lot of mac
users go out an buy 3 button mice so that they can use a scroolwheel and
alternate-click. I always found waiting 3 seconds for a context menu
unbareably slow.

Of course, I didn't mean *replacing* the context menu popup via right click. I meant to provide that functionality as an option, for users who have no clue whatsoever as to what the right mouse button does, and users who don't have a right mouse button.
