Luckily, xfdesktop already does that, as i found out lately: if you give the 
name field contents in /etc/X11/xfce4/menudefs.hook a _ somewhere, then the 
following letter becomes usable for moving to that entry in the opened menu.

    <menu name="_Mount" visible="yes">
       <app name="_CD" cmd="mount /cdrom"/>
       <app name="_Floppy" cmd="mount /floppy"/>
       <app name="CD_writer" cmd="mount /mnt/cdwriter"/>

which one can then use to mount the floppy with the keys M, F in the opened menu.

Btw thanks again for a fast and rich desktop environment!
