Hi all,

I would like to have some UX-advice input first, before working on a 
patch related to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32368 
(Undo/Redo shortcuts do not adhere to the basic scheme of Gnome).

Any objections to change the default shortcut for Redo to ctrl+shift+z 
(undo is ctrl+z). I verified the behavior of other programs, and I see 
most of them (randomly: Firefox and on Linux (Mint), Adobe Reader on 
Windows, Twitter (v2.2.0) and native 'text editor' on Mac OSX, ...) uses 
ctrl+shift+z for a redo action. I found 1 application during my random 
search that also uses ctrl+y as redo: Word for Mac.

Thanks for your input and time,
