one can assign a shortcut to the icon itself in the systray config (recent 
it could become the only way to do that , or both could remain (in the case of 
menu appearing at mouse cursor position, it would have to be the app that 
renders the menu (as opposed to dbusmenu) so it would look a bit weird.
