KDE has it and it is totally awesome... Until you realise that it
doesn't work with non-KDE apps. I assume something similar could be
fairly easily implemented in gtk, but that would ofcourse only work
with gtk programs. So unless all GUI toolkits share the same code for
drawing menubars you can't get it right. Maybe thats a task that could fix?
