Thank you all for your help. I finally got it.
In Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with Emacs 23.3.1 I did the following:

1. Remap Alt keys to the menu key...

xmodmap -e "keycode 64 = Menu"
xmodmap -e "keycode 108 = Menu"

2. Store that permanently...

xmodmap -pke > ~/.Xmodmap
echo "xmodmap .Xmodmap in" > ~/.xinitrc


That should work since the menu key runs execute-extended-command already.

I personally wanted to add some stuff before and after running
execute-extended-command so I added this to my .emacs ...

(global-set-key (kbd "<menu>") (lambda () (interactive)
                                ....extra commands here...

                                (execute-extended-command t)
                                ....extra commands here...))

It seems there is almost nothing Emacs can't do!
