There's always the BeOS fashioned cascading menu. While it doesn't solve everything, it is certainly better than standard context menus. I couldn't find the original picture, so I did a quick and dirty here :
I can imagine how it would look.
The first question would be wether the menu should grow to include
the sub level, or if the sub level should be drawn on top.
The problem is that it would make searching for an item terribly slow,
as then submenus don't appear on the side on just mouse-over.
I'm not entirely sure I understand, could you explain further ?
