I know, and the patch is nice imho.

I don't agree with that. The sidebar is optional, you are not forced to
use it. And some actions (opening with a default software than the
default one by example) are right menu actions which is not really
discoverable for users. Out of this using the bar is faster than opening
the menus for common actions.
