OK, bud, where's the RDP documentation on using accelerators?
To further defend myself by going on the offensive, I'll say that the
gtkaccelgroup design is just a bit odd. The accelgroup should just be
a map from accelerator key to (widget, signal) pair.
The fact that it is closely bound up into gtkwidget.c with
::add_accelerator, ::remove_accelerator signals, etc., is all dictated
by the change-accelerators-on-the-fly feature, that most people don't
know/care about anyways.
AcceleratorTable, AccelGroup, ... anybody for AccSet ?
Hmmm, Tim is going to be angry at me now...
