The use of left/right arrow keys was discussed on the style guide call
last Friday and nobody had an objection to their continued use.

>From the style guide minutes: 

2.  Radio Buttons- Proposed 
*        Tab key will enter the radio group. 
*        Tab again will exit the radio group. 
*        When tabbing into the group a second time you should return to
the point of previous focus (which should be the one that is checked) 
*        Up and down arrows will move between the buttons in the group.

*        When the arrow moves focus, the button is selected. 
*        Last arrow at bottom should wrap to top 
*        Up arrow at top should wrap to bottom 

Is there any reason that left/right should not also work?  That's the
way Win native radio button groups work and also how <input type="radio"
...> works on FF2 and IE7. 

There is an example on this page about 1/4 the way down:
