Nice, but can you add your own custom mouse menus like you
could with KDE 3.x and previous?

The one thing that I *hate* about KDE4 is that I had to go to
the start menu bar or clutter my desktop with custom icons
(or whatever you call them).  The default application menu
thingy is just too damned big to navigate; I want my own
menus using my first mouse button like I've been able to do
for years.  I've got 3 mouse buttons; let me use them the
way I want.  Christ, even Motif mwm lets me do this.
