It seems I missed this decision in this overlong thread.

What would be a good scheme for values of `key-accel'?
It could either specify the absolute position of the accelerator
in the menu label string (an integer value like `:key-accel 6'),
or the accelerator itself as a character (like `:key-accel ?A').
