I think most people would expect Ctrl+A to work (and Shift+Ctrl+A to
deselect all, which I don't think I had in the bug report)-- bearing in
mind this control might be used as the basis of a word processor, for
example, in which "Select All/Ctrl+A" is pretty basic functionality. 
(Although arguably the application could worry about implementing this,
rather than expecting the text widget to implement it itself).

I'm personally not fussed about the Ctrl+/ and Ctrl+\ shortcuts, though,
I think I included those for compatability with Java (or maybe it was
some other platform, but I certainly didn't invent them...)
