I think those are difficult to trap because they will produce different 
key codes depending on the keyboard layout.

Sounds OK.

I think Ctrl+Alt bindings can conflict with window managers, e.g. 
ctrl-alt-d is 'Show desktop' on Gnome. I know we already have ctrl-alt-p 
and maybe others though, but it's not ideal.
