Now, I'm pretty sure that the way I'm doing some view-specific actions isn't the currently accepted practice. This is what happens when the example apps are out of date, and most of the examples I found via searches were apparently old as well.
So, taking that into account...
How do I add accelerator keys to my actions?
I've tried setAccelerator() and that doesn't work.

I have several Views that extend ViewPart.
These add toolbar buttons like this:
        IToolBarManager tbm = getViewSite().getActionBars().getToolBarManager();
        mAction1 = new MessageSPAMAction("DoStuff");
        ActionContributionItem aci = new ActionContributionItem(mAction1);

The action class is an internal class, like this:
    private class DoStuffAction extends Action {

        publicDoStuffAction( String text) {

        public void run() {
            // Do things using member variables of the enclosing view

I would recommend to take a look at the Eclipse Commands.
Commands are newer than the Actions and they are loosely coupled from the UI.
See the following tutorial for further information:
