Furthermore, the manual page of denemo in the cvs also points to sourceforge...

not for French people, where you get a pointer on the sourceforge website, and
then a bunch of commercial links for "le mode de nemo" (Finding Nemo stuffs).

I google for denemo cvs and got that page first :

savannah cvs was nowhere to be seen in the search result.

I made some research on gtk handling of key events. It seems that supporting
actions only through key accels is not a good idea, since some keybindings are
not valid accels (Right, Left, ... this can be checked by trying to set a key
binding to that value). I gathered from your last mail that the hold keymap was
due to be obsoleted. When commenting the callback out of
score_area_key_press_event, I effectively lose the ability to move through the
score using Left, Right, ...

Is this a known fact? I would like to understand the plans on keybindings
stuff so as to modify it to better support non US keyboard.
