[patch]Vulcan Death Grip

Reported by: Ziusudra Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1

Platform: All


In BeOS the Vulcan Death Grip was Ctrl+Shift+Opt+Alt on PPC and Ctrl+Shift+Alt on PC.

This patch changes the current Shift+Opt+Alt (with or without Ctrl) to Ctrl+Shift+Alt (with or without Opt). This will work for the few users out there without Opt/Win keys.

Any thoughts on applying this patch to change the Deskbar's current Vulcan Death Grip of Shift+Opt+Alt to Ctrl+Shift+Alt (BeOS's x86 keystroke)?

Looking at the source, the current keystroke has been the same since it was first imported from OpenTracker.

AFAICT the shortcut never changed, and has always been like it is now. But I don't really care much anyway. There aren't many keyboards left without an option key, so I'm not sure it's worth it to take them into account here (it's not a function that should be used often).
