Well, I'm afraid that no themes display check menu items in the off
state these days... the GTK+ core doesn't allow it (It's very hard to
do this in an attractive manner and in fact, in a matter that makes it
clear that what you are drawing is the unselected state, not the
indicator for the selected state.)

I don't think there is much ambiguity if the menu item has appropriate

    Show Hidden Files

Clearly, a menu item that I select to show hidden files.

 \/  Show Hidden Files

Clearly a selected check menu item, that I select again to uncheck.
