Hm, why are you so dogmatic? Normal user uses _left_ click for
opening the menu and _left_ click chooses an menu iterm and
closes the menu.

So it is quite usefull to reuse _right_ click for other task,
such as for selecting multiple items out of the menu at once.

I don't see any reason, why a dialog box must be used if for
most users the menu is optimal way (because they select
only one item most the time) and the minority may use it
with the right click in a more powerfull way.
