Yes, ctrl-a is used for `select all' in the Gnome usability guidelines, too.
I can see I'll have to tweak the accelerators some more to get them in line
with Gnome's suggestions.

However, I'm not sure what `select all' would actually do if such a button
would implemented in Pan.  Having `select all groups', `select all articles',
`add subscribed to selection', `add subthreads to selection', etc. as in
Pan 0.11.92 is more useful...  Since threads are probably the most frequently
selected items, the 'a' keys should probably be assigned to those selections.

I'll tweak around on this later and post a revision here.
