According to calum, context menus can differ between objects ( ie
folders can/should have different context menus from image files etc.).
The hig strongly discourages the use of sub-menus in context menus, and
I think we should probably follow this recommendation as much as
One question. For some objects (rpms and iso's come to mind) opening
them doesn't really make sense. In the future would it be possible to
make these menu entries mime-specific as well? (instead of having open
and open with for rpms you'd have install or uninstall, for iso's you
would have "Burn to CD") Just food for thought.
