Yeah, that occurred to me too, but unless they happen to have any motion
impairments as well, they're unlikely to be significantly inconvenienced
by having to set mouse and MouseKeys properties in separate dialogs (I'd
have thought).

These days, any graphics package of the calibre that a graphic designer
will be using will almost certainly let you nudge things around a pixel
at a time just by tapping the cursor keys anyway... GIMP, Photoshop,
Illustrator et al. certainly do, at least.
