Suggestion make the volume slider from Deskbar also respond to arrow keys

It would be nice to be able to move Haiku's Volume slider not just by mouse pointer but also by using arrow keys.
Since the volume slider in Haiku is placed horizontally, the best way to do this (IMHO) would be to allow both the arrow keys that point left and down to decrease the volume and to have the right and up pointing arrow keys increase the volume.
The suggestion to let the Volume slider react to two arrows for each direction comes from an experience using OSX/MacOS:
An older version of this OS has a vertical volume slider, making it obvious enough that only up/down arrows are needed. In a later version this was changed to a horizontal volume slider that only reacts to an up or down arrow key press.
This last case is confusing and something the user is forced to keep in mind (which isn't needed). In the beginning it feels very unnatural and even annoying.
I tend to use the system volume slider in MacOS instead of each application's volume buttons (including web audio/video players) and added arrow key operation would make it easier to do that in Haiku as well.
