I think we agreed unanimous that "attaching both shortcuts (ctrl+y and 
ctrl+shift+z)" is a correct and best option here. In that case users can 
use the command they are used to.

I send a patch to gerrit https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/3853/ . I 
found out how to attach 2 key combinations to 1 command.
However: the shortcut key that is now displayed for a Redo action in the 
menu entries is Ctrl+y because of : 

/** map commands to keys in relation 1:n.
First key is interpreted as preferred one! */

Because Ctrl+y is the first key found, it'll display it in the menu 
entries. I think it should be possible to bypass it if we want to 
display ctrl+shift+z as default command, but I think I need to ask help 
on the dev-list.

Kind regards,
