    It is what X toolkits do.  In fact, once the menu is posted, the arrow 
    navigation and RET selection is all done by the toolkit 

In that case, it is clearly the right thing.

    Toolkits in general doesn't choose accelerators, the programmers of the 
    applications that uses the toolkit does.  However, many meny entries are 
    similar in a lot of applications (Open/Save/Copy/Paste/...) so we can 
    those to be similar.

I suspect another miscommunication here.  What do you mean by
"accelerators"?  I thought we were talking about typing a letter _once
the menu is active_ to select a given menu item.  Is that what you
mean, too?

How do these get selected, with LessTif and GTK?

(This discussion is for work to be done after the release, if at all.)
