Because the <new-file> is not always correct, e.g.

  <menu-bar> <options> <cua-mode>

corresponds to

  Options => C-x/C-c/C-v cut and paste (CUA)

It wouldn't be too hard to get this right...


  <menu-bar> <options> <mule> <set-various-coding-system> 

could be shown as

  Options => Mule => Set Coding System => For Reverting This Buffer Now

But the initial objection was that the key binding text was too wide.
My aim was to make the text shorter...
