The other methods in AccessibleExtendedComponent are
getAccessibleKeyBinding() and getToolTipText().
Our approach to key bindings seems to be different in that we return the key
binding associated with an action whereas in Java AbstractButton and JLabel
support the AccessibleKeyBinding interface.
For tooltips, we currently return the tooltip with atk_object_get_description()
if atk_object_set_description() has not been called for the object.
