This is exactly what the F9 menu is for. Just add a menu item with the following script:
explorer.exe /select,"%1"

Instead of Alt-P or Alt-O, you'd have to press F9, then the first letter of that menu item, and ENTER. I do this fairly regularly. Added bonus: it works the same in Tree Window, (Small) File Window, and Directory Window.

But something so trivial to implement using the F9 doesn’t warrant spending a precious keyboard shortcut, IMHO.
