Well, it is not too hard to come up with something, right. ;) Especially coding it is much easier than designing it (wrt. configuration and extensibility). You suggestion is, in my opinion, not better than keyboard-filtering of (hierarchical/grouped) menus. Hmm... user-friendly configuration would be more like expressing what you do frequently instead of filling a blacklist with things to not use.

It might be constructive to look for a good implementation of adaptive menus, whose design we could employ in Squeak. MS Office got rid of their approach, which I think is good. :)

well, that's not too hard, either ;-)

I suppose it would be more user-friendly to think about convenient means of menu configuration instead of just straying from one set of hard-coded values to another. :-/

It'd be neat if the IDE could somehow keep a collection of items to omit from the menu; with option to "restore all".
