I'm attaching a few lines of sample code with XGrabKey, as I was playing 
with this a couple of weeks ago.

The code is rather incomplete, and certainly doesn't account for 
"special" circumstances, or even checking return codes. But it should 
demonstrate the general principle. I don't know if it's actually 
correct, but it more or less works.

Build with:

     gcc `pkg-config --libs --cflags gtk+-2.0` globalkeybinding.c
