[Sugar-devel] [DESIGN] Read: focus after launching

when working on the issue in Read that the dpad keys do not work 
directly when in ebook mode [1], I postulated that Read when it comes up 
should always grab the focus on the view so scrolling using the arrow 
keys is directly possible.

I looked around and when opening a new tab in Firefox, scrolling using 
the error keys does work out of the box, in open-office and abiword not 
(you can use for example a wheel of the mouse directly). In evince using 
the arrow keys does work as well directly after launching.

What do others think about it? Maybe there are other ways of dealing 
with this issue (we should probably look at the evince code what they do).
