Sorry, Michael, I intended to reply to your first email, then forgot

Your patch will work for you (and for others too ! :) but I don't think
we'll want to include it, as it is too much specific. 

What would be interesting would be for us developers to challenge this
existing (and summaryview's) switch-case block and see whether we could
do the same normally using the top-level menu accels, so that it's
easier for everyone to customize to their needs.

I don't see why a Message/Selected part/{Save, Open, Open with,...}
menu wouldn't work.
