I have no problem with RIGHT bringing up a menu when it makes sense
for the theme.  In fact, I go so far as to say it *should* do that for
some themes.

FYI, I am the guy who originally made LEFT work like ESCAPE and RIGHT
work like SELECT on vertically oriented menus and later on some
screens.  I came from a TiVo background so that way of navigating
menus and screens made sense to me then, and it still makes sense to
me now for vertically oriented themes.

Sidenote: that TiVo I started with is now 9.5 years old and still
going strong in daily use by my Mom.
