Is it already possible or not?  Anyone?

I'm not a usability expert, but I think tool bar icon commands should
not popup menus (as the Emacs help icon does: duplicating the Help
menu item).

The different commands I have in mind for Gnus are variations of the
Reply command (e.g. with or without citing the text) or
gnus-summary-sort-by-whatever and the reverse sort.  As the icons and
command are customizable in Gnus (in the next version, see Gnus CVS)
the user can bind the most frequently used commands depending on
his/her usage pattern.

Bye, Reiner.
