Awesome.  :-)

I forget why this didn't make it to 1.4.0.  It seems like a simple
enough patch to make it to 1.4.1 to me.  Chris, what do you think?

Larry and Radek should be reviewing this soonish.

You can create a branch yourself on CVS.  Usually we use uppercase
underscored names (e.g. EVOLUTION_1_4_0) for tags, and lowercase dashed
names ending with "-branch" for branches (e.g. evolution-1-2-branch).

So I'd suggest something like evolution-a11y-branch or so for the name.

Actually, I think I have changed my mind on that.  :-)

I think we should be using keywords, just like does. 
So I have added a "accessibility" keyword and a "keynav" keyword for
tracking these bugs down; this makes it consistent with what the GNOME
a11y folks are used to, and also helps distinguishing issues by

Please let me know if this works for you.

This shouldn't go into stable, simply because it doesn't fix any bugs. 
:-)  We can put this patch in whenever we merge the rest of the a11y
branch as well.

You will be working off the a11y branch anyways, so it shouldn't make a
difference for you?..

Cool.  Happy hacking!  :-)
