That would be cool, thanks.

Well, the bottom line is this-- we'd like a patch that we can persuade
Owen to put into gtk before he decides to punt all further keynav
patches to 2.2, which it sounds like he's going to do very soon  :)  So
the sooner we can get something that works reliably and predictably and
run it past Owen the better, even if it's not perfect.  Paned windows
are one of the few gtk things (along with toolbars) that the keyboard
user just cannot use at all, at the moment.
