As I said in another mail, the HierarKey function could be
simplified, e.g. hitting M-g produces this prompt (my
frame is 132 character wide):

  Set face: default  (M-g d), bold  (M-g b), italic  (M-g i), l = bold-italic  
(M-g l), undeline  (M-g u), Other ...  (M-g o) 

With mini-menu, this would be much simpler, e.g.

  Set face: d)efault b)old i)talic bo(l)d-italic u)ndeline o)ther ...

I guess we could hack the HierarKey menus to look like that --
then mini-menu would definitely have no purpose at all!
