3) Switching tabs using LEFT/RIGHT if a tab is selected (see Firefox 2)
4) HOME to go to the top in the chat history dialog, END to go to the bottom
5) HOME to go to the top in the chat dialog if the view field is active, END to go to the bottom

7) HOME/END/UP/DOWN in the roster (both Contacts and Services)
8) LEFT/RIGHT/UP/DOWN in the whiteboard
9) UP/DOWN/HOME/END in the chatroom dialog
10) LEFT/RIGHT to open/close roster groups (see Konqueror-->F9-->treeview tab to test how it should work exactly)

Most of these bindings should probably be in the generic Tk code which I will investigate.
Notebook bindings for PageUp and PageDown has been added, see also http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1989808&group_id=12997&atid=312997

On Mac OS X the bindings for PageUp and PageDown should be ⌘⌥⇠/⌘⌥⇢ for tab switching shortcuts. See also: http://trac.adiumx.com/ticket/9611

Added:
     bind $top <Command-Alt-KeyPress-Left> {+tileutils::nb::TLCycleTab %W -1}
     bind $top <Command-Alt-KeyPress-Right> {+tileutils::nb::TLCycleTab %W 1}
but these bindings are not firing. If I skip the Alt it goes well. The
Alt seems special. Internally it seems that Alt_L and Alt_R are used
but if I use them I get an error from the bind command. Not sure what
to do.

As a said:
"but these bindings are not firing"

Must search for tips of how to use the Alt key for the bind command.
