Why not combine Tools and Buddies, and condense them if you're looking 
to save space?

Show and Add can be their own expanding menus to save some additional 

In my opinion we shouldn't kill off the help menu.. However, we *SHOULD* 
put something that _is_ helpful in there. If we can't manage to pull 
that off then it should be killed. Help is not very "helpful" currently..
