Hmm, probably, it looks kind of odd as it is, and if you've scrolled the
list far enough downwards you might not see the first row anyway.  Plus
the label gives us the chance to add a mnemonic, which will keep Bill &
co happy :)

I dunno if that's really necessary... I think this is a sufficiently
common type of dialog now that users will know that the selection on the
left filters what they see on the right.

Looks pretty good to me, though-- although, like I said, this is
probably the absolute simplest solution.  Should we consider allowing
users to add/remove their own custom menus/items from here too, or is
that too big a can of worms to open right now? :)
