Will, List,

You are not going to believe this. What's with the kde developers? You
and help and get the "kiss off" response. That's one of the big things that
is wrong with KDE4. This was files as a "Wish" and "Closed INVAL" -- Huh??
Go figure...

And the denouement is that it was closed INVALID by mistake, but on further
inspection the kwin developers pointed out that win+key shortcuts are not
upstream defaults as not every keyboard has a win key.

So I guess these shortcuts as alternative shortcuts are something we could
consider as an openSUSE customization - a predominantly x86 desktop linux
distro can pretty safely assume that 99% of its keyboards have win keys.

Too bad so many of my systems are in the 1% category. It is not only age
of keyboard, but style that also effects this. We very often use smaller
keyboards in our measurement systems. One way they keep the keyboards
small is by not having 'optional' keys.
