Thinking about it a bit.... this is really a GTK thing. This shouldn't be
at all difficult to implement. When a menu pops up GTK already checks where
you are on the screen, because the menu shows on the left, the only other
thing that has to happen is for it to mirror the image used for the arrow
and put it on the other side.

I have no idea where to start in the code, but I'll see if I can make a
patch for this. Should make for a nice challenge :)
