I do not agree: I never had to use ctrl+shift+Z as shortcut for redo,
and I used gnome for years, and now xfce. AFAIK Firefox and Thunderbird
have both, ctrl+shift+Z and ctrl+Y.

I think we need to choose the shortcuts our users are used to use. And
mainly, our users are MS-Windows users. What is the basic scheme of
MS-Windows ? Is it possible to have the default shortcuts depending on
the OS / Window Manager ?

Best regards.
