When I do this, I get the same behavior as the current. It cycles through
the options. I want it to pop-up the menu of all the proportional editing
options, like it does for "delete" when a vertex is selected in edit mode.
Did I do something wrong?

I admit I don't understand enough about RNA, Python, and keymaps to know
what this means.

 As a "naive user" in this situation, I would really like it if I could
hover-over a control, look at the RNA/Python path, and type that directly
into a keymap to trigger the menu. I don't understand why I can't do this.
Heck, I'd like to be able to "right click" on the control and choose "make
shortcut" and get a nice panel to set it up. Any advice on how I make that
