The toolbar can be made to be an accessibility tool for people experiencing pain
when performing keypresses.  If people can introduce a toolbar icon and 
a keybinding with it, they would be able to use that with KMouseTool to perform
the icon press for them.  And with a virtual keyboard, they can operate 
for typing.
