I don't know for sure, but I believe it's entirely up to the translators
to make sure they don't have collisions.  The only thing special we do
to mark the accelerator is put an underscore in front of the letter, and
you'll notice that underlined letter is inside the _() call, so it's
part of the translatable string.  A translator can do whatever they want
in there, which I assume means the underscore too.

In other words, I bet there's quite a few collisions.
