Adding Keyboard Shortcut Support to the WPF XamOutlookBar

I recently received a question regarding support for keyboard shortcuts for changing groups in the Infragistics WPF xamOutlookBar. If you are a user of Microsoft Outlook, you may have noticed that you can navigate to the different outlook groups using simple keyboard shortcuts. For example, you can press CRTL+2 to navigate to the Calendar group, or CRTL+3 to navigate to the Contacts group. The idea here is that a user can use their keyboard to navigate the groups contained within the Outlook bar navigation. Unfortunately, I discovered that our WPF xamOutlookBar did not support this behavior. So began my quest to find a solution. I actually came up with two solutions. I will describe them both and you can decide which approach you like best.
