disable numeric accesskeys

An internal website at work uses the HTML "accesskey" to make keyboard shortcuts for some features. Unfortunately, it uses 0 through 9, which are the hotkeys for switching tabs in Firefox, so whenever I switch tabs the page will navigate to somewhere else. Considering that 95% of developers use Firefox, I filed a bug on this, but it got closed WONTFIX. :(

Anyway, I wrote a Greasemonkey userscript to fix that site, but I just ran into the same problem at home (et tu, Trac?). So here's the script you need: remove numeric accesskeys.
