I'm strongly against context sensitive main menus. They shouldn't hide
and show menu items depending on account.

Hmm, if a lot of things are going to have to be added, it might be the only practical solution?

Is there any particular reason that this can't just be done through the
current "Subscribe to Folders" interface? I would greatly prefer
minimizing the possibility of new menu items. It's already large as it
is, and plug-ins don't really help the matter. :)

It may be possible, but the subscriptions window and mechanism would need some tweaking.  Although with a bit of thought I imagine they could both be done through the same window somehow.  Not trivial however.
