[Thunar-dev] Keyboard shortcuts for tab navigation

I am looking at this possibility but these shortcuts do not work because when you press GTK_KEY_Page_Up with GTK_CONTROL_MASK Thunar scrolls up and down. If you use another mask, GTK_MOD1_MASK for instance, it works. I do not know if GTK_CONTROL_MASK + GTK_KEY_Page_Up / GTK_KEY_Page_Down collides with another one.

Anyway, I think these are important shortcuts because you can use it in browsers, file manager, terminals, etc.
