Set up my soap box in the [META] Ctrl+Alt (aka AltGR) keyboard shortcut issues
Windows is especially afflicted with this because of the os remapping of <Ctrl>+<Alt> to <AltGr> in multiple keyboard layouts. But it highlights issue for all os/DE that by locale or keyboard choice clobber our default shortcut assignments.
Removing the few <Ctrl>+<Alt> shortcuts we've assigned globally or to modules seems reasonable, but it just kicks things down the road for finding a better way to accomodate keyboard layouts other the en-US
