Global keybindings are a scarce resource, and need to

a) be used sparingly (I strongly doubt that most of the apps that
currently copy those libtomboy parts deserve a global keybinding...)

b) be centrally managed. We have a relatively nice infrastructure for
that, with the keybinding capplet. Unfortunately, all the code that is
copied around totally ignores that, leading to ugly conflicts and
races when several apps try to use the same key combination.
