I have to wonder about this... Toolbars are supposed to be mouse
shortcuts for menu navigation. Doesn't putting them in the normal tab 
sequence just make normal keyboard nav clunky (having to tab through
all the toolbar items if you don't know about Control-Tab) for 
minimal gain?

(On the other hand, if there are widgets like URL entries in the toolbar,
they should be in the normal tab chain, but an app should set that
up itself with gtk_container_set_focus_chain())
