Under AmigaOS you could do it that way IIRC:
right-click to open the menu, then without releasing the
right-mouse-button use the left-mouse-button to do your multiselections.

Yep, that was handy alright... in fact you can do that in GTK menus too, but only if you use the keyboard: Space will check the focused checkbox/radiobutton menu item and keep the menu open; Enter will check it and close the menu.
