Indeed.

That could work, but i'm not sure if that would be of better style.  You
would circumvent built in code and hardcode a certain (generally
configurable) mouse key.

I see.  Note that the situation for ispell is similar: It has a menu bar
menu under Tools, but this menu isn't present in the mode-line, because
the code doesn't capture that case.

There's probably no nice solution for your problem.
