Btw, I think, even with an undo-Stack, the CTRL-Del is a much better
user-experience where I feel more secure and confident about touching my
keyboard. I really love it. I'm not sarcastic.

The possibility how to change accels could be more prominent. Otherwise
GNOME becomes a real nerd-platform:
 * see how costumization is done in the Archlinux Wiki [1]
 * recompiling for GUI options? Really?
 * pressing ALT key in random situations to discover more options
 * long press left mouse button to discover more options (as
   discussed in the new colorchooser)

However, if the day comes where I can discover options only when I touch
my nose with the tip of my tongue (cheese could detect that), I shall
shut up. Everything else (the four items above) is a torture for users
and therefore a design failure.

The last paragraph may contain sarcasm.

Still love your work,
