You actually do already have an issue entered for this. It would be
helpful if you could just be specific and update the issue on specific
dialogs that are missing accellerators.

Again, if there are other dialogs with this problem, it would help to have
a list to work from.

For those that watch the lists and would like to contribute to this
project, this would be a great area to start. You just have to have some
SWT knowledge to help polish the dialogs. Someone else, Eugene Kuleshov,
recently posted a list of dialogs that should be resizable and are not.
These are all area where contributions would be relatively easy to make
and also helpful.

Alex, you do enough for us, I am not directing this to you. I would just
like to recruit a few new committers to come on board and this would be a
good place to start, rather than trying to tackle some bigger issue.
