Agreed. I think one of the aspects in which Gnome is lacking the most is
keyboard navigation. You need the mouse to do *anything*, the existing
keybindings are not very consistent, developers forget to bind Enter to OK
buttons and ESC to Cancel, etc. Maybe we should make a "Keyboard Navigation
Effort", like the Icons and the UI one?
