fact that we can now make the sliders wider:

Second is a design Bill suggested this morning, with three tabs:

Apart from the dubiously-named tabs ("Basic" doesn't mean a lot, and a
"Mouse" tab in a keyboard dialog sounds pretty fishy-- but they were the
best I could think of at the time!), it also has a couple of extra
features that he thought might be useful:

- Ability to turn all the feature-enabling keyboard shortcuts (press
Shift 5 times etc.) on and off separately from the global "enable
keyboard accessibility" switch-- Bill assures me this is possible in XKB

- A button to open the mouse preferences dialog.

I've also changed the units from "msecs" back to "ms" in accordance with
the latest draft of the GNOME Documentation styleguide:
