Keyboard shortcuts for switching between tools

Hello, thank you for this app,

I (and a lot of users I am sure) would like to have shortcuts to switch between the tools, for example e to choose the eraser, a for for arrow, etc… that will save time searching in the toolbar for the keyboard-fan users.
