Ah, I didn't know that. Longer to type though.

Not quite. Try a file whose path contains spaces.

SHIFT+CTRL+V is an awkward combination for something
that's used frequently.
The Mac has a built-in advantage over GNOME here: the
GUI uses the CMD key for shortcuts, and the terminal
uses CTRL. So there's no clash between the copy
shortcut and the terminal's CTRL-C.
