comment How to add an entirely new menu
Thank you David, this was known, but the real point is: can we do this programmatically? Can a user-package do this and then perhaps programmatically restart the fron-end so that the new Menu takes effect? You can see from my comment above in Degnen's answer and in the question text that the real challenge lies in doing this programmatically.

comment How to customize the MathematicaClosingDialog.nb?
@m_goldberg I do not think this dialog exists under OS X, because it depends on the fact that under Windows MMA 10 has a menu bar in each notebook window. So if you close the last nb, you are given the choice -in Preferences- to either quit MMA for good or open the ClosingDialog (with another menu bar). Under OS X I understand that MMA 10 still has a global menu bar, so this issue does not arise.

comment Menu commands on Palettes and other windows without menu bars?
This question has not been resolved after more than a month. It seems to me that it deserves to be tagged as bug, at least in windows. Don't you agree?

@blochwave :-) yeah, I asked this in 2008 in MathGroup. Perhaps this time someone will reply.

PatoCriollo: the GeneralUtilities package does not seem to be documented in V. 10. Could you please describe what is it used for and how you found it?

Klingon character support has been removed: that's because Klingons do not respect the Galactic Copyright Treaty

comment Incompatible Changes since Mathematica Version 7?
I would delete the "interoperability" tag , since it does not apply here, and add the "version-10" tag. Would you agree?

comment How to set an absolute path name using SetDirectory?
@seismatica and stevenvh the point of my comment was to raise awareness on the issue of inputting file names. The documentation: reference.wolfram.com/language/howto/InsertAFilePath.html says you must use double backslashes, but also offers drag and drop techniques. In reference.wolfram.com/language/howto/… you can also read about FilenameJoin

are the double backslashes really necessary, in Windows?
