This is sort of a lost cause; if you want an extra key, you're best
off using Hyper or Super.

The reason none of GNOME is using these is essentially because of
gtk_accelerator_parse(). We need to add an egg_accelerator_parse() or
something to libegg that parses <Meta>, <Hyper>, <Super>,
etc. (modifiers by name instead of modifier bitmask).

Then the various apps can use that.
