Thanks Soeren:

As Calum said, my preference is for the toolbar to be in the main focus
chain.  I think that using arrow keys to navigate within the toobar
(rather than putting every toolbar item in the focus chain) makes the
most sense, and maps well onto other 'compound' widgets in terms of

If we go this route, apps with toolbars will have one more item in the
tab-focus chain, and F10 would just cycle between menus (if there's more
than one menu, for instance the foobar).
