Indeed, if you want to test for those.  This was kind of the problem
our primary/secondary modifiers plan was supposed to fix: have a set
of 'first-class' modifiers such as Shift, Control, etc, which were
meaningful for key interpretation, as with today.  But then also add a
set of secondary modifiers which are strictly advisory and meaningless
on their own, e.g. LShift, RShift, etc.  But I haven't had the time to
implement this.
