hidden shortcuts

Ctrl+I, the default shortcut for "Mark as Important", conflicts with the "hidden" shortcut "I" for opening a URL inside an article.

1. Select an article which title starts with an "I"
2. Press and release Ctrl to show the "hidden" shortcuts

The article's title gets "I" as a shortcut to open it in a new tab or an external browser but pressing "I" marks the article as important instead.

The article's title (and any visible URL inside said article) should either skip the letter "I" as a shortcut, as done when a title starts with "N" (since Ctrl+N is "Mark as new"), or Akregator should ignore/bypass Ctr+I as it does when a title starts with an "U" (Ctrl+U is "Mark as unread") or "E" (Ctrl+E is "Mark as read")

Ideally, for consistency, Akregator should either skip all of "E", "I", "N" and "U" asl URL shortcuts, or ignore all of Ctrl+E, Ctrl+I, Ctrl+N and Ctrl+U when the "hidden" shortcuts are shown so one can use those letters to open the URL, the latter being my preferred solution.

Another affected shortcut to keep in mind is Ctrl+P, with the 'p' being skiped as a hidden shortcut.
