An attempt to use GNOME 2.0.0 without the mouse will turn up some nasty 
deadends.  Depending on what release we want to target for "functioning keynav", 
these might climb in urgency/criticality.  Some of this may fold in logically 
with the UI review.  At the moment a 'mouse free' user won't be able to use
GNOME effectively or perhaps at all.  Unfortunately some of these problems seem 
to be regressions.
