Note: given that most accelerator-type keystrokes are reserved by the browser (ex: ctrl-n opens new browser window), and also that we've reserved certain keystrokes for things like jumping from a panel in a tab container up to the tab labels, it seems unlikely that we'll be able to support accelerators. Will think about it.
