Feature Request(s) - Menubar: labels and manual actions

Talk, speculate, discuss, pontificate. As long as it pertains to Hazel.

The more managed folders and rules I build in Hazel, the more I'm yearning for a fleshed-out menubar. Mainly, being able to set named actions in the menubar vs. an obtuse Run Rules listing of the managed directories. For my use-case, functionality would be two-fold: 1) forcing Hazel to run rules that are ongoing, but for whatever reason not happening; and 2) Building rulesets for rules which are to be kicked off manually vs. automatically.

Hazel is designed specifically for automatic running. It's not meant as a way to run actions manually as there are other methods for that (Automator, AppleScript, Keyboard Maestro, etc.) Can you provide actual use cases for why you would need this?
