Same way as you pop up the menu for anything else-- move the focus to
it, then press Shift+F10.

The large print themes currently set the focus indicator width to 3
pixels, so allowing for an extra pixel on each side of that I guess
about 5 (or maybe 7) pixels on each side would be the maximum that any
GNOME theme would realistically need.  I'm not sure that would be an
excuse for just hard-coding a 7-pixel gap around every applet though :)
