ARIA keyboard navigation best practice

I finished updating the ARIA keyboard navigation plugin tonight.

As of this version the plugin manages focus using tabindex alone, which means it functions in browsers old and new (whether they support ARIA explicitly or not). Browser support has been tested with Firefox 3.6.3, Chrome 4, Safari 4, Opera 10.51 and the Trident Trio (IE 6, 7 and 8).

During the refactoring I also managed to shave ~170 lines from total code weight — and this version has more comments!
