Consistency please?

Ctrl+Alt+PgUp/PgDn is actually the only shortcut that's guaranteed to work "across the rest of the Gnome tabbed interface UI"-- Ctrl+PgUp/ Dn sometimes fails when the focused widget eats it to do something else, which resulted in lots of bug reports. That's why the Alt variant was added to the notebook widget, and IMHO should really be the one that's documented wherever we document that sort of thing (Accessibility Guide?)
