Edit Mode - "Duplicate or Extrude to Cursor" needs menu entry.

You can in Edit Mode with Ctrl and Action Mouse either create a duplicate of the selected geometry. Which is randomly rotated then. Or extrude a edge to the mouse position. There is also a Shift Ctrl Action Mouse hotkey where you also rotate the base object.

This is odd functionality since you have not really control about the rotation min max values. And acts different, dependand of what is selected. But it is nevertheless functionality.  And this functionality has no menu entry. A functionality without menu entry is no go.

Task: add menu entry. Tool Shelf seems to be a good location for that.

Not really a happy bunny about the location. It's a rarely used tool with odd functionality. And so it shouldn't be in the crowd of the most used tools. But this location should be good enough for now. At least it has a menu entry now.
