	Ho hum; nasty :-)

	Well - I guess the -idea- is prolly to try to show the user the key
that is written on their keyboard, rather than a generic 'Ctrl' for
Control - it can show 'Control' (if that is what is written there) or

	IMHO that leads to excessive ugliness and a ton of code in there that
(AFAICS) works well only for obscure unix'es.

	But, of course, some keyboards really do have oddly named keys that we
want to assign shortcuts to so ...

	I was pondering what to do with the code the other day; if it is not
even working for the common cases .... ;-)
