I suggested on emacs-devel to change the behavior of Emacs as
follows:  Pressing Alt, then hitting f, then releasing Alt, should
behave as it does now -- it should invoke M-f aka forward-word.  But
pressing Alt, then releasing Alt, and *then* hitting f should invoke
the menu bar.

Maybe that might make you happy?

The only problem is that you will need to write the code...
