 The GTK port of Emacs is brilliant.

Indeed it is.  One query: is the lack of support for the GTK
menu-accelerator keystrokes (eg. hitting F10 and navigating the menus
by using the cursor keys) regarded as an outstanding bug to be fixed
for the next release, as a wish-list feature, or as a rejected and
undesirable feature?  I, for one, find that the support of XEmacs for
this feature is one of the few places where it has an advantage over
GNU Emacs.

The first, i.e. an outstanding bug to be fixed, but it is not critical for the next release.

It would be nice if it could be fixed for the next release, but it may
be a non-trivial task.  I once looked at the code, and saw that this
GTK feature was explicitly disabled by Emacs.  I tried enabling it,
and saw that there were weird side-effects in which point moved in the
buffer in addition to the menu navigation, and so I gave up
investigating it.

That sums up the work to be done quite nicely :-)
