Please bottom-post on mailing lists.

I have done a little experimenting with this on people, both with RISC
OS -- https://www.riscosopen.org/content/ -- which always and only
works this way, and with the ROX desktop --
http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/.

I find it _really_ confuses people who come from more mainstream
desktops with permanently-visible menus: both the Windows and Mac
families.

Whereas I like it, I think GNUstep should stick to the NeXT model for
now. It is part of what makes it distinctive.

However, a more conventional & widely-available menu-accelerator key
would be a good thing. Either the PC-style Alt for menus, Ctrl for
actions (e.g. Alt-F for File, Ctrl-O for open) or a Mac-style Super
key (Super-O = open, Super-X = cut, etc.)
