The new branch 'feature/context-menu' now includes also the variable
'context-menu-overriding-function' that can override the normal menu.

But I have no idea on which mode to test it.  It makes sense to
override the normal menu in modes that produce too long menus,
such as a long list of candidates in flyspell-mode.  But flyspell-mode
already overrides the menu with own [down-mouse-3], and rewriting it to
use context-menu-overriding-function might cause backward-incompatibility bugs.
