Dave has proposed something like this to (i bet he already put it in 
bugzilla). I'm not sure putting e.g. "New window" and "New Folder" in the 
same menu is a good idea. They are conceptually very different sort of 
operations. On operates on a directory and creates a file, the other is a 
pure UI operation.

If we had several file-creating operations it may make sense to put them 
in a submenu like that though.
