From today's action items....

The following exerpt is from the IBM Software Accessibility Guidelines
techniques for keyboard equivalents [1].

"The accessibility requirement is for all functions of the software, that
are not inherently mouse functions, to be operable using only the keyboard.
Drawing is an example of a function that is inherently a mouse funtion.
Direct manipulation, such as selecting text, is not inherently a mouse
