I think this is a good move. Only one thing concerns me.. when I right
click something, it is the down part of the click that makes the menu
appear (so far so good) but the corresponding mouse-off of that same
click can trigger a menu option if the mouse is over it (as it obviously
is going to be unless the mouse moves away at the same time as
clicking.. this is awkward and a little annoying.

note that if you click and release very fast, there doesn't appear to be
this problem, only if you're slow (as I often can be if I am thining too
hard on what I am doing) and click... then wait for menu to appear, then
release... (in order to then think and find something to click) only to
realise that the release of mouse activates the menu. Perhaps the menu
could be made to respond to only the down stroke ... but then again.. I
think many people click-and hold... find option.. then release in order
to do what they want.. so anyway.. I'm rambling now...

Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave
of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it
would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
