Can you elaborate on this? One of the goals of Mallard is to allow

Advertise the feature? :)

Does it work when they are installed into different directories like
~/.local/share/$app/plugins vs /usr for the app?

I'm still not in favor of users having to open help and scan for
shortcuts when we have a very simple way to find what you're looking for
via the search window (and discover new things you didn't know about).

But I'm biased, given that I wrote it.

I'm also skeptical that users will think to open help to find shortcuts
when the dominant platform (web) has gone with the shortcuts overlay
route (albeit their only option).

  Going extra mile to “find” shortcut is never gonna fly.  Years ago, we
had a perfect solution for discovering shortcuts  – relevant letters
were underlined in the menus.  In some cases underlining appeared only
after Alt was pressed, which was less discoverable, but still many
times more easy to find than shortcuts popup easter egg.
  Please bring back underlined menu items.
