A lot of applications store custom accelerators in ~/.gnome2/accels.
Not sure if there's libgnome API that writes data there -- I'm just
using GTK's API with a hard-coded path in Evolution -- but do we have
any consensus on where this data should -really- go?  ~/.config/accels
maybe?  Should this policy be encoded in GTK+ itself?
