Description

I just realized there are much more functions than visible on the GUI!

Based on Wikipedia:

"Keyboard shortcuts are typically an _alternate_ means for invoking one or more commands ...." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_shortcut

Note "alternate".

I imagine an "Tools" menu, next to "Map style", "GPS data", a similar button, which would be a dropdown menu for the other extra features that are currently available via buttons only (e.g. "J").

Something like the Tools menu in JOSM.

Very easy to implement and would teach Potlatch to all users immediately.

Known aspiration, no need to clog up trac/mailing list with this.

Just putting stuff in a single menu is the cop-out way of doing it and not especially helpful, especially as it risks making the interface look more complex to the first-time user. Each option needs to be considered on its own merits and that may involve a Toolbox option, or a context-sensitive menu or panel, or something in the tag panel, or whatever.
