	Oh, I forgot the obvious reason why we need to remove the
mnemonics - or at least have different ones for toolbars: while the
mnemonics are designed for nice conflict free use in eg. the 'File' menu,
when these mnemonics are mixed [ with items from many menus appearing in
the toolbar ] there will inevitably be hard to resolve conflicts which
will simply confuse the user and create grief.

	Yes, precicely.
