Re: short keys for plugins

layout instruction for the main context menu. So it's not allowed for a
key-binding, and there's no sub-menu item for it. But we can't get at the
internals of gtk's menu construction, to tell it to omit items for which
there's no sub-menu.

I'm not sure that I understood this last part, but I thought that it would
be nice to make these "top level" items deactivated (with a sort of
grayish colour). I am talking about the items that are
"top" inside the submenus.
In practice these are not used and they distract attention, somewhat.
