If menu-bar-mode is off, making F10 show the drop-down menu temporarily
(or on-demand) is nice. However, I know how difficult(for me) to
implement such behavior because I tried it once for X11[1]. So I
prepared the patch using tmm as temporarily solution; and I installed 
the patch.

What we (you and I) want is Gregor Zattler suggested at [1].  However,
I didn't installed it to the official tree because, it is not my patch
and the expect behavior of on-demand drop-down menu is not discussed
enough. As far as reading your post you may have much detailed but 
important requests about the behavior.

Eli, in my interpretation, you don't object to introduce on-demand 
drop-down menu. However, you yourself doen't want it. Right?
