I disagree. For The GIMP with hundreds of filters this feature
is a must-have. What I'd like to see is a way to hook into the
process of reassigning a shortcut so the application can tell
the user that it she is about to assign a shortcut that is 
already in use. The user could then decide if she wants to continue
or cancel that operation. Eventually this feedback dialog should
be in GTK+ itself.
