This is the best idea I have heard about menu items. And BTW, what about
Options and Settings as KDE options menu. I want to say this:

|- New
|- Etc
|- Etc
|- Options >
|            |
|            |- All
|            |-------------
|            |- Opt1
|            |- Opt 2
|            |- Etc
|            |--------------
|- Settings > (the same)
|- Quit

And when you select all in options or properties you open a windows with a
tree in the left where you choose Opt1, Opt2, Etc. The same than the KDE
Control Center.
