Perhaps, but there is such a thing as to many shotcut keys or buttons,
but I'm sure someone has discussed this to death on some mailinglist
somwhere.  but the popup city button seems kind of stupid anyways,
typical thing you would remove if you love GNOME hig.

Ha! I just spent the weekend with a guy working with SUN on a 3 year
Gnome accessiblity project. But we aren't using Gnome.

Yes, but it can be used and it's kind of logical, we can still keep
the 'm' key, you don't want to grab the tab key. ESC works for;
Dialogs just close the dialog and bring up the last used tab, tabs
(e.g. city list) you just switch to the map tab

So ESC works great for bringing up the map.
