Same for me, I'm neither satisfied with my new arrangement nor am I satisfied 
with yours, though both make sense in some way. Sometimes these simple things

Not sure if it's ok to create another menubar item for two actions. I think

Hmm, good idea, I'll make a screenshot of two different menubars (no popups 
shown) and see what my friends think about it :)
