Excluding Evolution, I don't think I've seen another application where
right-clicking on a column header does anything - I wouldn't think of
trying it to show/hide columns.

While that would work, I think the original suggestion is better. Have
View->Visible Columns pop up a small window, change the checkboxes, and
then close the window. If we _really_ don't want a window, I guess we
could have View->Columns submenu with toggle items.
