Re: keyboard events?

I don't really agree. If I'm using gtkmm, then I'll look in the gtkmm
documentation, not in gtk. Besides, there isn't any place in the gtkmm
documentation that links to the gtk doc. about the keyboard shortcuts
(that I'm aware of).

Simple or complicated is subjective, it depends on one's knowledge. If
there's no information about how to deal with keyboard events, then
its going to be difficult to figure it out :)

I think there should be an example on the gtkmm book about this (I
guess I could write such an example, although I'm not exactly a pro in
gtkmm :p).
