This is exactly what accelerate-menu does, with the added feature that
the File menu (ie, the first menubar item) is preselected so that you
can type either f or RET to drop it down.  (This is true for submenus
as well.)

No.  It works as you would expect.  F11 activates, single letters and
digits (also arrow keys and RET) navigate thereafter, no meta-chords

    Kai> Am I misunderstanding something?

Only that I didn't say anything further about the accelerate-menu
interface beyond it being one-shot; all the rest referred to the
"permanent" meta-chord interface.  That wasn't at all clear from the
way I wrote it.  A presentation flaw, rather than your misunderstanding.
