FWIW, I must agree with Björn on this. I like the
idea of being able to customize the F2 (and F3, too!)
quick-menus, but I still want them to
_behave_like_quick_menus_ so that a single keystroke
cycles through the choices.

On a side note, couldn't we allow more than three
choices on each quick-menu. What about the UP key? or

Also, why not allow more than 2 quick menus. A
short-press/long-press distinction of F2 & F3 would
provide for four of them instead of two.
