How to disable keyboard navigation in jQuery UI tabs

This is a quick tip to disable the keyboard navigation introduced in the latest jQuery UI releases (which at the time of this writing is not configurable), but before to show the snippet I have to say that while jQuery is an helpful and powerful JavaScript library, jQuery UI is really sucky and that the team behind it should take it more seriously… I mean, it’s just ridiculous compared to other js UI libraries and further more them don’t care about retro-compatibility (I had problems on every update in the past!).
Ok, this is how I removed the keyboard navigation (it’s really a dirty way but better than what I found online and it’s working!):

jQuery('.foo').tabs({
    activate: function(e, ui) {
        e.currentTarget.blur();
    }
});

In practice in the “activate” callback I remove the focus from the tab and thus the listeners related to the keyboard are not being executed later.
