Well, there are some more competitors out there ... and other modules
that could be competitor-fied (although I don't like the idea in the
long run).

Personally, I think some investigation ... then (that's only my
point-of-view) a keyboard definition file that could be created within
LibreOffice itself. The Load/Save feature for keybindings is available.
The good thing is, that we could go back to the legacy OOo keybindings
at the end - everybody should be fine.

Of course, in the first step it wouldn't be that discoverable. And, we
should really think whether we want to name the competitor products
(mmh, although we do that in the compatibility options for load/save).

Other thoughts?
