 I tried this when we were updating the styles for the nav menus. It is a
 bit of a mixture of the RTL styles for the menus. While it looked better
 with regards to the edge of the screen, the usability suffered a bit and
 there is a visual oddity in navigation-mocup.jpg (edge of the 'dropdown'
 underneath the middle of the previous menu item).

 I suspect the best answer is, in a future theme, to not have the menus go
 right up to the edge of the main container. There may be some javascript
 solutions to stop the overflow/force the element back, but I always think
 this sort of menu should be achieved with just CSS.

 As a workaround, anyone wanting to do this needs to make sure that a
 hierarchical drop-down is not the end-most item in their menu.
