I think that is a good option. I have always viewed kmenu start and selection is 
something I do with a mouse. The option would preserve user choice while opening 
up the win key to be used in more than 1 way for the users that choose "Linux Style"

Thinking out loud.......

Personally, I don't see why it can't do both. Tap the win key once -> you get 
the menu, press it, followed by another key and you get the combination 
behavior. Is there a reason it won't do both? The 'alt' key alone alread does 
menu focus, why couldn't the win key alone just pop up the kmenu and still be 
used with other combinations?
