Heh ;-)

We could use the 'Super' or 'windows' key as a modifier, because I
imagine many users have that key (I think one company even made one
with a penguin 'Linux' key). But probably it's a bit less portable than
using Alt combinations, which I don't like much anyway, but we use
for less common things.
