We could simply allow [a-z0-9] by default, and provide another meta-message
for translators to append to that what they consider is fine for their
language (hm, or make it by state rather than by language?)

Regardless, I'm more worried by the fact that reports KAccelGen
to be used only in one place, in Konqueror, and that whatever *really*
assigns accelerators (Qt?) completely ignores non-Latin characters, thus
leaving e.g. my Cyrillic menu items unaccelerated. On the other hand, if I
understood, this is exactly what e.g. CJK languages would want to happen.
So... any idea who should I complain to for script-dependent solutions? :)
