Re: [gtk-osx-users] Switching keyboard layouts with Alt+Cmd+Space

I think Alt+Cmd+Space is special case.
1. In Apple documentation there is statement that currently there is no way to know which shortcut does what action. You can only get the list of the shortcuts (like in patch You submitted for 711019), but You could not get information what some particular shortcut is responsible for.
2. Even when we pass Alt+Cmd+Space back to the system (by returning GDK_NOTHING), it does not work as it should (see my comment in bug 711019 thread) for some reason. So, there is no sense to listen to anything, since we a) do not know what action we should do; b) we do not know how to do it properly.
All this means, that we have to define action for Alt+Cmd+Space inside gtk or gdk or somewhere else. I do not feel competent enough to answer where... I am counting on You guys to give me some hints...

It seems like we want to change the way we do events so that rather than just emitting a signal to all interested parts of the application, we emit a signal and get a response from the listeners that tells whether they actually did anything in response to the signal.

I haven't investigated further to see if this can be done without breaking ABI.
