FI, I have posted a patch implementing this in gtk on
Along the way, I found that there is
which is supposed to do the same, but that doesn't work:
"accessible-role" is supposed to be an int, not a string, and thus one
would have to put 117 there instead of ATK_ROLE_STATIC, which is really
going to work :)
So I'd say my proposal still make sense?
