However as yourself noted, the patch conflicts with the accessibility
use of Tab, which is something we cannot afford.
I figured this would be the case...
I am also not really convinced by the additional menu items: switching
to the next tab can be accomplished by simply clicking the tab or by
using shortcuts (ctrl+alt+pgUp/pgDown), why would one want to use a menu
item? We try to keep menu items to a minimum to not clutter the UI...
I too am somewhat befuddled by my decision. I think I was thinking from
a design point of view every keyboard shortcut should has some UI
visibility. But I suppose the fact that you can click on a tab makes
this moot :D.
Keep on hacking though, it's lots of fun :)
It sure is.
Thanks for the commentary!
