I removed "Close" from the menu, but i'm having some difficulties
deciding what to do with the "Close all but current" menu item
should it be "Close all but active", leaving the active tab open
or "Close all but this", leaving the tab that received the ButtonPress
event open

for other items in the popup menu, i'm impartial
if you guys want, i'll add a "reload", "save", "save as", ... menu item

also, i recently found out right-clicking the < and > arrow in a
notebook scrolls to the beginning/end of the notebook
this makes navigating a little bit easier
