Well, thinking a bit more about it, I think:
1) that Gábor 's hint is easy and very useful for D6, and simpler than
what I sometimes had to do. I'll use that for now.
2) that there should be an even easier, more drupalish solution for
Here is the issue which includes 2 very simple proposals consistent
with the rest of Drupal:

In hook_menu(), create an item that maps node/add to your own function
$items = array('path' => 'node/add',
'title' => t('Create content'),
'callback' => 'mymodule_node_add', // -->> check this line.
'access' => user_access('access content'),
'type' => MENU_ITEM_GROUPING,
'weight' => 1);
This will override the core callback for node/add.
copy the function node_add() into a new function mymodule_node_add()
which you can then customize anyway you want.
At least, that's what I understood Gabor's comment to mean.
It's simple and much more flexible than what I did before, but I don't
like having to copy a whole core function just to remove one item.
Here is a better way for D7:

That's very kind, but I still think it would be a bit premature... ;)
I often look in awe at what many other members in this list accomplish
regularly without breaking a sweat!
