Comment (by davidakennedy):

 @sami.keijonen Thanks for the work on this! I appreciate the creative
 thinking and coding.

 Your currently proposed way is better than a custom widget... but it could
 be confusing to people. Right now, in order to make the menu appear in the
 widget area, you have to have it assigned to the Social Links Menu spot.
 Unless I'm missing something. Which means the menu will appear twice on
 sites. Which some people may not want. :)

 All that said, I don't want to add more complexity to the theme, even if
 it's for a good feature like this. Not sure there's a way around that
 here. I'm a no on this in its current form, and probably leaning toward no
 overall. Happy to listen to other ideas or iterations.
