I would go with curses bindings as a basis and match GTK to them. This is
what do[1]. With curses, you cannot do combinations like
Ctrl+Shift+letter, and other combinations might not be available either
depending on your terminal. However, keep in mind that Alt+letter may open
up the menu in GTK, so you might want to disable menu mnemonics, either
through GTK itself or by changing your locale.conf to remove the '_'s.
