Hey Brendon,

Found some time to check it.

My feedback:

Good cleanup to the Add and Object menus. With the View menu, I think it 
would be better to keep the directions in the main level for fast access.

Would be good to keep your file if a redo to the menus would be done (so 
keep it somewhere). My take on re-sorting of the Object menu can also be 
found in the rRMB add-on - when you launch the menu in Object mode, it's 
all the entries but the first four (Place 3d Cursor, Move 3d Cursor, 
Select and Add).
