If no one is, I can do it.  

On a related note, is there a reason why Emacs
queues keyboard events while menus are mapped?  That is, if I click on
a menu, press "Hello world", and then clicks down the menu, the "Hello world"
is inserted into the current buffer.  I have never seen any application
doing anything like it.  Can that be removed?  I would suspect that
it can lead to surprises if keyboard shortcuts are implemented for menus.
If you hit the wrong key when a menu shortcut was intended, you don't want
that key to go into the buffer later when the menu dissapears.
