It was removed from Qt because there was no (generic) way to 
save those shortcuts, so you would just lose them after restarting the app.
(IIRC I was also told that Gtk dropped this feature too?).
Plus handling shortcut conflicts is difficult, etc.

Anyway - IMHO we have a nice "Configure Shortcuts" dialog, we don't need
this (potentially confusing) feature.
