Go To submenu in editor context menu

Hi,

I was always annoyed by the Go To submenu in the editor context menu, which has Go To Declaration, Go To Implementation, etc. There used to be a very useful plug-in called GoToHack, which removed this sub menu and put its contents directly in the context menu. Now with the new Customizations area in the options, I was excited finally to be able to remove this context menu myself without any plug-ins. However, after doing precisely that, I see that this doesn't work very well. Sometimes the Go To submenu still shows up, and sometimes it doesn't, and I can't see any pattern. There is a bug submitted about it

http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-7877
(part 3)

But it has a medium priority and I have no idea when it will be fixed. Is there anything I can do raise the priority of this bug? Are there other people who feel the same way?

Thanks,
Ilya

Wouldn't you be much better off just learning & using the keyboard shortcuts
anyway? About the only time I ever use that context menu is for obscure CVS
operations (the ones I use most often I already have in my own quicklist).

Well, I find that Ctrl-B (Go To Declaration) is too close to Ctrl-V (Paste) and it's easy to do one instead of the other with ugly results. Also, "shortcuts" that require pressing more than 2 buttons at once (Alt-Ctrl-whatever) are annoying and I don't use them very much. I would rather use a context menu. Different people work differently I guess.
