You seem to be able to directly affect Python development.  If that is
true, maybe you could remove the pull down redundancy from one menu
and add a pull down option to another pull down menu.

If Python can modify the pull down menus, it would be nice to be able
to right click in a folder (Windows) and have an option to create a
new python file with a .py extension like you can create a new text
document with a .txt extension.

OpenOffice adds this option to create new OO files.
