a lock-all-accels-on-this-widget flag, rather i don't understand
why you want it.

well, it's one of the problems that people run into that might
cause them to want per-widget accel locks.

that can be determined from whether the item factory handles this menu
(and tehrefore if accel changes can be saved).
havoc outlined this on gtk-list (and maybe on gtk-devel even).

it is, without a default accel group currently runtime
changable menuitems that don't have an accel group (e.g.
from an item factory) wouldn't be changable at all.
