A proposal to move the mapping of input events to actions form an
application to a system-wide level:
All feedback welcome, including on style, terminology and grammar :)
Important questions are: do you want it?
How can it be made to happen?
GNOME Terminal's shortcuts, adding shift to the common mappings
to maintain console mappings like Ctrl-C for termination has been
mentioned as a problem here a few times.
An advanced implementation of my proposal would include the ability
the change console shortcuts like Ctrl-C to something else.
Besides possible improvemnts on my design document, next on my
list is a mapping configuration dialog, where I currently see
some scary complexity. All input and help welcome.
