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').

Why no just a text property on the character in question?

Defining menus is already complex enough as it is.

Sure, but putting in stuff like :key-accel makes translation harder and you have to add lisp and C code to handle it. Text properties exist now.

It is trivial to make a function that takes for example "_File" and turns this into a string with "File" and a text property on F.
