The simple answer is, yes, you are too impatient ;-)

We try to look at patches as quickly as possible, but that
is not always as quickly as we would like... 
Unfortunately, your patches is far from being the oldest patch we
have sitting around needing a response :-( 

I'll try to take a look at your patch in the next few
days as I get caught back up here. I haven't looked at
the code yet, but my initial reaction from your
description is:

 - Moving the stuff I put into gtkmain.c somewhere else
   is probably appropriate. I'm not sure yet where that
   "else" is.

 - gdk_std_modifier_mask() is in the wrong layer (policy
   belongs in GDK), is configured in the wrong way -
   the user, not the application, should set this stuff and
   the idea of having one "standard modifier" is a bit dubious 
   to begin with.

   I'd almost rather actually leave this stuff hardcoded until
   we have a way of letting the _user_ set such options.
