Sorry what I wrote at the end didn't really make sense... it will 
simpify the user-interface from the perspective of someone using the 
UCAs but configuring them would be more complicated: look at Edit -> 
Custom Action... you're going to need some sort of treeview in there 
with the user able to add and remove branches, and then add actions 
under each branch.  Maybe I'm just worrying too much: I guess mozilla 
firefox already does this with its bookmarks manager.
