That's indeed awesome, however, various OS's (like Windows) trap the Alt key 
for menubar activation so GIMP (GTK?) needs to distinguish that Alt+(something) 
= shortcut key and Alt (by itself) = activate the menubar.  On which note, I am 
occasionally frustrated that pressing the ALT key in a GTK2+ app does not 
activate the menubar like every Windows user expects it to.  (This applies to 
GIMP and Inkscape both.)  This is a major suckage on the UI too (esp. if it's 
not reconfigurable), because alt key sequences are just as strong a habit as 
Ctrl+shortcut keys are.
