I have been looking further into "menu binding pretty-printing",
and I agree that my previous approach was too narrow-minded.

I now have a solution where key-description produces a real human
readable text for menu bindings.

For example,

(key-description [menu-bar file new-file])

now prints

 <menu-bar> <file> <new-file>

whereas with my patch to key-description, it will print

 File=>New File...

Since this is implemented in key-description, it will show the new
format in all contexts, e.g. for C-h a, C-h k, C-h w, etc.

Another example:

<menu-bar> <options> <mule> <set-various-coding-system> 

Options=>Mule (Multilingual Environment)=>Set Coding Systems=>For Next Command

Shall I install this?
