There are already many dialogs that work very well with keyboard users
in mind. Excuse me blowing my own horn. ;-) The "Procedure List" dialog
comes to mind. Default focus, default actions etc are all in place. For
myself, that dialog is my primary way of navigating units.

The issues I listed are all very minor things. Any programmer should be
able to fix those. You do not require deep knowledge of Lazarus IDE
