I quite like this but I'd appreciate options to change the key that triggers this

First, thank you for a great little utility. I'm a switcher myself and have long been waiting for a utility like this.
As I've just downloaded it, I can't comment on its quality yet but have a small feature request.
Could you make it so that it deselects the menu upon pressing the alt/option key when the menu is already selected, just as in Windows?
Thanks.

Does this differ from using ^F2 (default for "Move focus to the menu bar")?

Does this interfere with using Option (Alt) as a keyboard shortcut modifier?
