There's a bit of a i18n issue with that (I only can get the plugin name, 
but that is not always the right form in this situation). Alternatively 
I could add a title, which makes the menu a bit too big IMO.

Wow, I've never seen that. Not sure if that can easily be fixed. Would 
you mind creating a bug report for that in bugzilla?

The 4.2 way is not possible with the current plugin API and I don't 
really like to change that.

But it would work less nicely, since you couldn't move the mouse to the 
screen edge to hit a task button.
