I was thinking of something like:

File

 New
 Open...
 Recent Files    >
 Close
 Save Project
  Other Items 
 Import             >
 Audio...
 Labels...
 MIDI...
 Raw Data...
 Export...



Edgar: split the Help menu into Tools and Help :
Tools
Show Log...
Run Benchmark...
Audio Device Info...


Screenshot Tools...

Note that in the above "About" item there should be no elipsis -- the use of an elipsis signifies that the user will be asked to supply additional information before the action can be completed.
This also makes the Help menu very short. I think we could expand upon a little:
