 I have an impression that it's impossible to have plain characters without
modifiers to be used as accelerators for menu items. I hope someone will
correct me if I'm wrong.

 You can fake accelerator by connecting to button_press_event on your window,
checking for space, and if it was space pressed, calling your action and
returning TRUE.
