Or did I miss the obvious solution?

Well, there's always the revolutionary idea of putting the application's
menu somewhere near the application, rather than two feet away at the
opposite corner of the screen.

But if hiding it somewhere a long way away from the app is actually
considered to be a *good* thingĀ¹, then why would we *not* want to put it
on a different screen? Surely that would be even *more* fun for the user
to find, so it's even *better* than the original "menu elsewhere"
implementation on a single screen was?

Well. That sounds pretty much like the awful implemetations of Unity
(Ubuntu) and MacOS (Apple). As far as I understand the Application-Menu
should not replace regular menues, but instead offer a addition to to
regular menues, with only some concise items (Open, Preferences, Help,
About, Exit not not much more).
