It's not needed AFAICT. In KDE, system-wide bindings (such as
screenshot, main menu, etc.) are not handled by the window manager, but
by a separate daemon ("kded4"). In fact, having those bindings in core
hurts us in KDE for the default config because both compiz and kded4 are
trying to grab e.g. Alt+F1. Moving that code to a plugin which is only
enabled in Gnome solves that kind of problem.
