I think what's missing is a way to hardcode accels after they are first used. 
Either by the user (first actual use of the accelerator) or by the 
application (first display of &View in a specific window). 

I'd also remove most of our accelerators from the code. If you ever translated 
a random KDE application you will find yourself doing a blind flight throug 
the accelerators.

Greetings, Stephan
