accelerators hard to see in default theme

the accelerator colors are yellow vs. white in menues and blue vs. black in dialogs. if the aim was to make the coloring subtle, then it was definitely a success ...
but there is a usability/accessibility aspect to that. a single slightly differently colored character may be really hard to spot at a quick glance - depending on ambient lighting, monitor settings and personal vision capabilities.
with egmont's attribute patch, the right solution is of course using underlines for accelerators. for the color-only schemes, i'd suggest using slightly more contrasting colors. i haven't played with it yet, so i can't make concrete suggestions.

in the red deletion confirmation dialog, the accelerator of the selected button is invisible at all - grey on grey.
(i think i've seen the effect in another dialog type as well, but can't find it now.)

Just for the record: the referred attribute patch (or a followup thereof) is at #3169.
