They should be safe enough to use, although I'd imagine some people will
have Ctrl+<number> set up to switch workspaces... but that's their
problem :)

Although it's slightly more effort for the user, the more usual way to
deal with dynamic lists in menus is to give them a numeric accelerator
(mnemonic) rather than a shortcut, like the recent file list on the File
menu.  That also makes it somewhat useful for lists of >10 items, as gtk
does something sensible if two items have the same accelerator (e.g. _1
and _10)... with shortcuts you don't really have anywhere to go after
Ctrl+9 (or Ctrl+0, depending on where you started).
