> The Media File View page includes a YUI based context popup menu with these options for
a media file:
> - Edit
> - Delete
> - Include in Gallery
> - Include in Post
> It is flawed in several ways:
> - Not obvious: it's not obvious that the menu exists, users won't notice it
> - Requires left click: again this is not obvious, users won't know to left click to get
the menu
> - Doesn't always work: in some cases after scrolling the menu will not work and you get
the browser's context menu instead
> - Requires a lot of JavaScript code: the code is long and complex, not justified by functional
> I think the best course of action is to remove the context menu and add links to the
Media File Edit page to allow users to create new weblog posts. 
> Once the context menu is gone, here's how users will accomplish the functions that were
on the context menu:
> - Edit: simply click on a file to edit
> - Delete: users already have option to delete selected files
> - Include in Gallery: users already have option to do this via edit page
> - Include in Post: add links to edit page to enable this
