For a second time, I know it's good to handle shortcut in a
centralized way so that conflicts can be handled much better. But to
accomplish such an aim, we need standards that everyone obeys, not
only GNOME, nor IMFs. Shortcut collisions happen everyday, and you
arer more likely to meet collisions when you use input methods because
they are using many shortcuts and you aren't clear about many of them.
But a concrete proposal to solve this concrete example is not the way
proposed on right now, because there are
misunderstanding of what's IMF and how it works.
