[Bug 682788] Re: Improve Unity Global Menu


When the app opens, show the menu bar for a few seconds, then hide it.
Warning: the menu bar floats above the app content, because they're layers.

for consistency: window controls are always visible and appear by the
left of the title in non-maximized windows, so they should be always
visible and appear there too in maximized windows

for discoverability: google mobile is going to use three horizontal
lines to represent a list and shows the Google service and product list
when clicked, so instead of showing the menu bar for a few seconds, then
hiding it, we could use an yellow icon with three vertical lines inside
a circle by the right of the window title that represents a list and
shows the menu bar when hovered or touched

(These two wishes are very good for tablets, because we don't keep track
of the user's finger position in the air, so the user won't hover
anything, so the user will see the icon and intentionally touch it.)
