right click *in* a menu

Some users of my software raised this issue in the last 24hrs:

I'm wishing for that as well all the time. I wonder who came up with the
idea that there's only ever one thing you want to do in a menu. Didn't
know anyone was clever enough to implement something as complex as
"don't close menu if right-clicked" or "don't close if modifier is
pressed when menu-item is clicked".

It's one of those obvious user interface doh's.

has this ever been considered?
