As you mention it - has anybody used NeXT-style menus with
focus-follows-pointer ?  Maybe if applications request the
shared menu only after a (e.g. 0.85 sec.) delay it could work ?  I'd
love to use NeXT like menus but I'm using said focus policy in the 
window manager.

Another idea would be to have right-click get the context menu
as usual and Ctrl-right-click get the complete app menu (in
NeXT style with Quit/Exit beeing the last top level item as an option
to display app menus.
