It was a nice feature allowing to do more actions in the menu during one
rolling down.

And a nice Amiga Multiselect utility also enabled multiple selections
outside menu, in file lists, file managers etc. without using of Shift

- Place mouse pointer over the first item you want to select
- Press left button
- Keep the left button pressed and press right button
- Release left button, keeping right button pressed
- Use left button clicking to add toggle items selection, keeping right
  button pressed
- Release right button

Both these features I often miss in GTK+.
