Keir, we did consider such way to supply useful key sequences. But if we
remap such key sequences, it is very possible to conflict with other
applications and meanwhile users have to change their habits and
remember the mappings. Then maybe they'll get some confused. Until now,
you know, there isn't standard way to deal with combined keys in virtual
machines, such as vmware, qemu, and so on.
So this way is the easiest remembered, least conflicted one, I think.

Is this generally useful? If you are proposing this as a general way to
get around useful key sequences getting stolen by the local gui, it
doesn't seem the kind of interface that users will want. Can we remap
such key sequences in some way to make them accessible to users without
needing to run a monitor program and type in sequences longhand?
