I am unsure if there is a built-in tool in KDE to configure menus directly in 
the same way that you can configure toolbars, if it is already part of the 
KDE framework I will add it, otherwise I will wait until it is part of the 
KDE framework ;-)

But even if we do implement configurable context menus, then like toolbars 
some sensible defaults will still be needed.

That should be possible, although I still don't think it will be accurate 
enough - a single pixel on the timeline might represent a large number of 
frames unless you are zoomed in quite close.
