So you are saying that a fix for a clear and present bug should be
postponed pending a future decision about adding a feature?  That
doesn't sound like the right idea to me.  I'd rather say that when the
support for menu accelerators is added to Emacs, we will have to
figure out how to do that without smashing & characters in menu items
and keybindings shown next to them.

If you still aren't convinced, please start a thread on emacs-devel
about this, and let's hear what others think.
