access table contents in YaST in more ways than just by push buttons

Feature state



There is feedback (e.g. http://mvidner.blogspot.com/2009/01/yast-ui-table-usability.html ) that users might get confused with the fact that table actions (performed on the table items) are accesible only as push buttons below the table.
What users are used to from other GUI applications and what they miss in YaST UI is: a) context menu activated by right click on table item (e.g. edit/delete this item) b) more function key bindings (e.g. 'Delete' key will do the same what would pushing delete button do)

What I also miss is some active items in table, e.g. checkbox, radio buttons via entries (bootloader simulate this by '*' and you can change it only by button), combo-box or text field. If this is enabled we can easily create table which can advanced user fulfill and beginner can start wizard via button.

At engineering's discretion.

I've added support for context menus to yast2-qt version 2.18.6 in order to provide the infrastructure for this request.
