An access key wouldn't hurt, though I don't recall ever hearing of 
someone using them in practice.  Just be careful of your hands if you're 
pressing three-simultaneous-key combinations a lot

BTW, I blogged an alternative a couple years ago, pasted below.  Instead 
of "plt", now, I use "r" for Racket documentation.  Usually I do Ctrl-T 
to get a new tab, so I don't have to make a decision on whether to 
replace the contents of the current tab, and which also leaves the text 
cursor in the AwesomeBar, ready to type my "r" search.
