I'd buy that for a dollar - it'd slightly simplify the stuff I did in
Ethereal to use accelerators as (to use the term Windows and, I think,
Motif use) mnemonics, i.e. to let the user activate buttons from the
keyboard with <Alt>+<underlined letter from the button label>.

Just out of curiosity, when is it useful for a window to have more than
one accelerator group?  It appears that "gtk_window_add_accel_group()"
allows this.
