On the plus side, the good thing about OS X menu extras (as they're properly called) is that they're all generally of a uniform size and appearance (they fit into a square, and they're monochrome)-- the 15 I have still take up

Out of curiousity, do they all act like menus?  Also guessing that you
don't have the google notifier since that one isn't monochrome (I wish
it was)...

Yes, they do all act like menus, except arguably the standard OS X volume control and Spotlight icon, which both somewhat stretch the usual definition of a "menu". (But not out of all recognition.)
