Once we port to GTK 2 adding keynav is much, much easier, and adding
keynav with 1.2 is kind of hard and easy to get wrong and not really
documented. Plus the code for 1.2 and 2 will be totally different.

What I'd suggest is more useful right now is to have a day to close
all the KEYNAV keyword bugs in GTK bugzilla - it doesn't look like we
will have time to do all of those, and closing them does a lot for the
desktop. Then have an application bug day once we port to GTK 2.

The thing to do there is post a mail summarizing each issue with
pros/cons and see if we can hash it out, I guess.
