This method should no longer be used for actions in the Eclipse workbench. IWorkbenchCommandSupport and IWorkbenchContextSupport provide all the functionality required for key bindings. If you set an accelerator using this method, then it will not work in the workbench if it conflicts any existing key binding, or if there is a different key binding defined for this action's definition id. The definition id should be used instead -- referring to the command in the workbench from which the key binding should be retrieved.
