Detachable menus... Using some visual bar in submenus (like in motif) is a 
waste of space. What do you think about modifier key+mouse dragging anywhere in 
the submenu? Something similar to draggin windows in windowmaker. You press 
Control or Command or whatever and you drag opened submenu.

Well it's already the case ... because menus are implemented as windows, if your
window manager supports the dragging of windows via a modifier key you could
simply detach the menu. (WindowMaker supports it for example).
The problem is that the menu doesn't realize that it is moved, so it disappears 
soon as you select another entry...
