We do have "a custom editor for normal keybindings now". Shame, but forced on us by Gtk3 changes.

I'll open a bug on github about the alt-key mnemonic navigation aspect of this if I remember (and if I find it works in GtkApplication code).

I think that's why GIMP decided to disable it by default, and why GTK doesn't enable the mypaint way of rebinding keys by default any more (for a long time now).

A simple test-and-return-false in the main key-press and key-release handlers of gui/keyboard.py and scattering underscores throughout the menu definitions suffices to get mnemonics working again for menu entry, if not usable operation. But it clashes pretty horribly, confusingly and unusably with rebindable menus (pressing a key or key combo while in a menu now has two meanings!). Rants aside, that's probably why recent DEs turn it off by default.

Basically this isn't going to be doable without a custom editor for normal keybindings. One Day, Maybe.

Would it be possible to reintroduce alt-key mnemonics during the normal flow of operation? Primarily for invoking and driving the main menu as in other GTK/Gnome apps.
