It would be useful to do that for all the bits of gnome-settings-daemon
that require keyboard filtering.

Right now, we can't put an X filter because XkbSelectEvents doesn't
allow us to apply more than one filter-per-process:

And the accessibility bits use XkbSelectEvents which probably breaks the
multimedia keys setup if a11y is enabled.

$ grep gdk_window_add_filter *.c
gnome-settings-accessibility-keyboard.c:        gdk_window_add_filter (NULL, cb_xkb_event_filter, NULL);
gnome-settings-clipboard.c:             gdk_window_add_filter (gdkwin, clipboard_manager_event_filter, NULL);
gnome-settings-daemon.c:                gdk_window_add_filter (
gnome-settings-keybindings.c:      gdk_window_add_filter (gdk_screen_get_root_window (screen),
gnome-settings-keyboard.c:      gdk_window_add_filter (NULL,
gnome-settings-keyboard-xkb.c:          gdk_window_add_filter (NULL, (GdkFilterFunc)
gnome-settings-mouse.c:                                 gdk_window_add_filter (gdk_screen_get_root_window (screen),
gnome-settings-multimedia-keys.c:               gdk_window_add_filter (gdk_screen_get_root_window (l->data),

There's probably a better way to do this.
