I've tried it and it seems to work. I think it would be even clearer without
the hyphens:

    n==>New File...  (C-x C-f)         o==>Open Recent
    O==>Open File...                   d==>Open Directory...  (C-x d)
    i==>Insert File...  (C-x i)        c==>Close (current buffer)
        Save (current buffer)  (C-x C-s)
    s==>Save Buffer As...  (C-x C-w)       Revert Buffer
    r==>Recover Crashed Session        p==>Print Buffer
        Print Region                   P==>Postscript Print Buffer
        Postscript Print Region        0==>Postscript Print Buffer (B+W)
        Postscript Print Region (B+W)  a==>a2ps  (<f22>)
    S==>Split Window  (C-x 2)              Unsplit Windows  (C-x 1)
    N==>New Frame  (C-x 5 2)           f==>New Frame on Display...
    D==>Delete Frame  (C-x 5 0)        e==>Exit Emacs  (C-x C-c)

The nonselectable items, are still selectable from the completions buffer with
mouse-1 or <RET>. They just do nothing and return to the original buffer. I
guess this is consistent with clicking on a nonselectable menu-item but in
this case its clearer that you haven't selected anything because the relief of
the menu-item doesn't raise when the mouse is over it. Might it be better/is
it possible to make clicking with mouse-1 or typing <RET> over these items do
absolutely nothing in text mode i.e keep the completions buffer intact (and
perhaps echo "No completions here" in the mini-buffer), just like in the

Overall I think this an improvement, more consistent and worth installing.
