It, or something like it, is mandatory.  Otherwise it is impossible to
navigate through any window that has a GtkEntry field in it.  Though at first
it was a bit wierd, I've grown used to "option 1" - Ctrl-Tab to move out of a
GtkEntry field, using Tab everywhere else.

I think this is less important, though doing so would duplicate Java and make
life easier for many.
