The way I see it, the "Tool Bar button" should be the menubar itself, so
that whenever the mouse moves into the menubar area, the toolbar pops up (or
slides down ;-).

The same could be done to the menu bar.  This "auto hide" trick is one of
the rare developments in GUI-stuff that I find interesting (not that it's
new, tho: it's basically the same as the "pop up scrollbars" of SmallTalk).
