Since it has done that for a long time in emacs, it seems like we
should keep F10; the first menu seems like the right one

Yes.  That's what Gnome does, and it seems very convenient.

Mozilla only closes the current sub-menu, whereas Gnome seems to close
all menu panes on ESC.  Personally I think Mozilla's behavior is better
-- it's less severe, so causes less annoyance if you hit ESC
accidentally, and anway, you can easily hit ESC multiple times to get
rid of the whole menu (whereas the reverse is obviously not true!).

.Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
