As a mnemonic, no. Mnemonics are keys that will be activated when you press Alt. For instance, 'X' would be the mnemonic if Alt+X would activate the button.
What you want is what is an accelerator in menu items. This doesn't exist for other* buttons, but you can use key bindings instead. Check out the
tutorial for more information.
so technically it's a button
