I'm not saying there are no design flaws in PUTTY or any application that
suddenly leaves you with no way to change a runtime setting. Ok, that's a
problem for them. But I still think it would be nice to let the applications
to customize the menu shown by their window manager when clicked. It's a
common feature in Windows, I see nothing wrong with it and I've missed it
sometimes. It's not that I want to copy Windows, it's just that it's a good
feature in my opinion and I would like to see it in KWin and other window
