I think that the icons should be on in all cases; at least, if the
application indicates keyboard shift status I think it should do so all
the time, and I think it's useful in all cases.  It's info that the user
doesn't usually get, but I still think it's useful.  If there's any
question about the utility of the 'control/alt/etc' modifier indicators,
then I'd suggest making that a property/preference of the applet.
