I'd also prefer context sensitive menus on right click than the whole bunch of 
main menu. That would make understanding an application from an "not so 
experienced" user quite more easy. Especially true for more complex apps like 
e.g. Gorm, where therer is a plethora of menu entries, but only some apply to 
the point where I right clicked.

For the time being, do you have the script and template somewere around where 
others, like me, could download it?
