	Seems right to me too FWIW - and I have a very nice proposal
coming along to make the accessibility module loading truly beautiful -
integrated with gnome_program - and in addition to have a global GConf
setting for accessibility that when changed causes everything to spring to
life (or die I suppose) :-)

	Coming in an hour or so,
