What about differentiating this item from the others somewhat? Extra
spacing, a separator, boldface, etc? Still look like a menu item, but
somehow show it's not all separate items.
General menues should have a way of dealing with it too. I'm thinking
just different spacing between items (small space between words in one
item, long space between separate items) but I've no clue if that'll
*really* work well.
Menu-prelight might also help, too - not sure why more themes don't use
it. (Is it just not possible?) As then when the mouse cursor goes over
the item, it'll plainly show its all one item.
Or am I just smoking crack again?
