You can already get to "Commit Current" with `alt-b' (to drop 
down the Mail_box menu) and `m' (mnemonic for "Commit Current"). 
The main window already has many keybindings--I don't know if 
there's one left over that could be used as an accelerator for 

Keyboard access is an issue for Balsa-2; it's getting better, but 
there are still some rough spots--please let us know of any more 
that you notice.

The compose window is much less keybound; the attached patch 
implements Ctrl-S as an accelerator for `File -> Save'. It's a 
diff against the BALSA_2 branch in current cvs, but should apply 
to any recent source tree. If nobody sees a problem with it, it 
should presumably be committed.
